Commercial Real Estate Appraisal

Uses of a Commercial Appraisal

The goal of an appraiser is to provide an impartial, independent and objective analysis and value opinion for a commercial property.   Appraisals are known mostly for their end result value opinion. However, appraisal reports also provide valuable additional market information including local market conditions, economic conditions and demographics. Particularly useful comparable property sales, construction costs, occupancy/vacancy rates and rental rates are also included. Some of the most common reasons to have an appraisal performed include:

  • Purchase and sale transactions
  • Mortgage lending and underwriting
  • Investment Management
  • Estate Planning
  • Litigation
  • Foreclosure (REO)
  • Insurance Purposes
  • Internal Accounting
  • Real Estate Property Tax Appeal
  • Eminent Domain
