Does Sentimental Value of my Property Make a Difference in How Much it is Worth?

Hello, my name is Raymer Maguire, I’m a 30 year eminent domain practitioner, I limit my practice to representing property owners and business interests. And the question at hand is, does the sentimental value of my property make a difference in how much it is worth? The short answer is, no. The practical answer is, yes, to a limited degree. What I mean by that is, that’s not the way a jury is gonna be instructed to award a full compensation to you, but if you have lived on the property for decades and your family has, and you’re being uprooted rather abruptly and unfairly, for the good of the community, I think, every jury would take that into account, intending to go a little higher than they otherwise would because of the sentimental value.
