Knowing the value of your property is important before selling it in the property marketplace. A proper appraisal of your property is important before you sell it.
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. On the other hand, if the property value if too low, the seller will lose out on a potential profit. Commercial property is evaluated through commercial appraisal.
If you want to find out the market value of your commercial property, there are many ways of appraising it. In order to compare different appraisals, some commercial property owners hire two appraisers at the same time. 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. There is no use of any pricing mechanism in the common appraisals and for it to be properly done, you should seek an appraisal from an expert.
A licensed appraiser performs the appraisals. There are times when the appraisal value is based on market assessment and the highest and best use of the real property. The appraiser then submits his appraisal on a standardized report form. The appraiser will submit a narrative report if the piece of property is complex with many unusual characteristics.
The types of methods used in appriaising property are the cost approach, the sales comparison or the salary-based approach. With the cost approach, the value of the property is determined by subtracting any improvement from the value of the land. This approach is usually used on newer structures and less on older structures. The sales comparison approach evaluates the price per unit area of land similar to other appraisal amounts of similar properties in the marketplace. Among the three approaches, this is the most objective. Income stream evaluation is used for the salary -based approach to appraising the value of commercial and investment properties.
The appraisal method used is dependent of the type of asset you have in the property. When appraising skyscrapers, then the income approach is used, but if you are appraising retail or office building, the sales comparison approach is used. Sales comparison is also used for appraising apartment buildings. It is best to get an expert appraisal of your property before selling it.
If you are buying commercial property, make sure that you know it’s accurate market value before buying. It is always beneficial to get appropriate appraisal with expert advice.
