Real Estate Market Value Appraisals
Real Estate Market Value Appraisal: An Independent, Supportable Opinion
As a property owner, it’s important to get an independent, supportable market value appraisal for:
- Sale or purchase of real estate (what is it worth in the market?)
- Allocation of purchase price after acquisition (what is it worth in the market?)
- Financing the purchase of real estate (what is it worth in liquidation?)
- Financing of new construction or renovation (what will it be worth after completion?)
- Property tax appeal (what is the market value and assessed value?)
- Section 1031 Tax Free Exchange (what is value of replacement property?)
- Valuation of business enterprise (what is it worth to the business?)
- Condemnation in taking under eminent domain by government agency (what is it worth in the market?)
- Right-of-way and easement negotiations (what is it worth in the market?)
- Estate administration and estate tax filing (what is it worth as of the date of death?)
- Highest and best use for future development (what developed use will create highest value?)
Selection of the right appraiser who has experience in valuing your type of property, who considers all the appropriate factors that may impact value, who is completely unbiased and independent, who will recommend the level of detail necessary to your requirements, and who can support the opinion of value under challenge is essential.

Some real estate appraisals use outdated market information and are not adjusted properly for differences between the subject property and sales data properties.
After constructing a high quality office building 15 years ago, an owner decided to cash out and concluded a value of $25 Million. An expert appraisal revealed that the real market value was $32 Million, and the property was ultimately sold for $31 Million.
