LAKE COUNTY, Fla. – Jan. 13, 2015 – Florida homeowners should think twice if a county property appraiser asks to see inside their home.
According to an alert issued by Lake County Property Appraiser Carey Baker, scam operators in in his area are falsely claiming that they're county property appraisers as a way to see the inside of homes.
Baker's office received several inquiries about property appraisers last Thursday, he says. The callers claimed to be representatives of Baker's office and asked to schedule a time when they could stop by.
While each county appraisers office operates differently, Baker said in his statement that residents "will never receive an unsolicited phone call from my office asking to see the inside of your home." He said Lake County property appraisers visit neighborhoods and new construction, but they check only home exteriors – they do not go inside.

"Kathy was awesome as our realtor. I have dealt with many realtors, but none as advanced and hands on with the showings. During the showings she had pointed out the flaws with the homes for us to make an educated decision. She had guided us on the different areas that would best fit our needs. Most realtors are all about the sale, but my experience with her was the exception. She went the extra mile to make sure the home you were looking for met your needs and did not push you into a home that might not be right for you.The response time was incredible, she guaranteed a phone call or answer to any question same day. Her customer service was incredible and would recommend to all of our friends and family. I have dealt with many realtors in my profession but none as as caring, knowledgeable, or efficient as her. Kathy's referrals for the inspector and mortgage process was outstanding. I would not hesitate to look forward to anyone else going forward. Best Regards, Jim Glowniak "
