Church property has been formally appraised
An appraiser, BBG from Texas, performed a formal appraisal on our church property as a part of the requirements for the bond program. We purchased the 25 acres at Shaw and McCall in 2004 for $875,000 ($35K/acre). The appraiser has valued the property today as being worth $2,250,000 ($90K/acre)!!
