Hey Folks:

So how much do you adjust for a 15+/- foot high, solid wood, hand carved dragon? It looks like the neck and head is from the base of an old tree trunk (still attached to the roots) with the wings and tail from the upper sections of the tree, which were then attached to the base.

Imagine if your subject property looked directly at this!

Webmaster’s note: Please send along your ideas for unusual items you have had to adjust for…

    Depending on where in the world this is located a +-100% adjustment.

    I remember the day I drove up to my inspection in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn. There in the distance was an 11′ wide, 80′ long, 4 story 2 family detached frame home. As I walked down the block, I prayed it was not my inspection, since the neighborhood was dominated by 2 story, 1 and 2 family attached brick properties. Sure enough it was mine and visions of flames danced in my head! If that was not enough the owner had a pool ( a very small one) and greenhouse on the roof!

    This is what separates the women from the girls.
