Knowing the value of your property is important before selling it in the property marketplace. In order to sell your property, you first need to get its proper appraisal.
It is very important for an investor to value commercial property. If the property value placed by the owner is too high, then there is no sale that will take place. If you give a very low value to your property then your potential profit will be lost. IIs is through commercial appraisal that a commercial property is evaluated.
If you want to find out the market value of your commercial property, there are many ways of appraising it. Many owners will usually pay one or two appraisers and compare each individual’s evaluation. Most professionals appraise a piece of land by developing an opinion of the value of property. An appraisal of a land occurs because no two properties are identical and the value of all of them differs based on location. Since appraising a property’s value does not always use a market-based pricing mechanism, an expert appraisal of the real estate is needed.
Appraisals should be performed by a licensed appraiser. Market assessment and the highest and best use of the real property is sometimes the basis of the appraisal value given by the appraiser. The appraiser then submits his appraisal on a standardized report form. If the piece of property is complex with many unusual characteristics, the appraiser will typically report his findings in a narrative report.
The cost approach, sales comparison, and the salary-based approach, are three methods for assessing property. The cost approach suggests that the value of the property is equal to adding up the value of the land minus any needed improvements. IF the structure is new, the cost approach of appraisal is used and this is not used so much on older structures. In the sales comparison approach, the price per unit area of lands similar to the property is compared to similar properties in the marketplace. Among the three approaches, this is the most objective. Salary-based approach is used to value commercial and investment properties as it evaluates an income stream.
The appraisal method used is dependent of the type of asset you have in the property. The income approach is used to appraise investment properties like skyscrapers, but the sales comparison approach can be used to appraise retail of office buildings. Sales comparison is also used for appraising apartment buildings. Get an expert appraisal for your property before selling it.
