Valuation Methods
The valuation methods used in our appraisals include:

  • The Sales Comparison Approach: The process of deriving a value indication for the subject property by comparing sales of similar properties to the property being appraised, identifying appropriate units of comparison, and making adjustments to the sale prices (or unit prices, as appropriate) of the comparable properties based on relevant, market-derived elements of comparison. The sales comparison approach may be used to value improved properties, vacant land, or land being considered as though vacant when an adequate supply of comparable sales is available. (The Dictionary of Real Estate Appraisal, 6th ed., Appraisal Institute, Chicago, Illinois, 2015, p. 207)
  • The Income Capitalization Approach: Specific appraisal techniques applied to develop a value indication for a property based on its earning capability and calculated by the capitalization of property income. . (The Dictionary of Real Estate Appraisal, 6th ed., Appraisal Institute, Chicago, Illinois, 2015, p. 115)
  • The Cost Approach: A set of procedures through which a value indication is derived for the fee simple estate by estimating the current cost to construct a reproduction of (or replacement for) the existing structure, including an entrepreneurial incentive for profit; deducting depreciation from the total cost; and adding the estimated land value. Adjustments may then be made to the indicated value of the fee simple estate in the subject property to reflect the value of the property interest being appraised. (The Dictionary of Real Estate Appraisal, 6th ed., Appraisal Institute, Chicago, Illinois, 2015, p. 54)

The valuation methodology applied in an appraisal will depend on a variety of factors, including: client preference (where appropriate), type of interest appraised (leased fee or fee simple), property type, age of improvements, quality of data gathered and the appraiser’s personal judgment and expertise.
