Real estate appraisal is the process of developing an opion of value for real property. Real estate transactions often require appraisals because they occur infrequently and every property is different, unlike securities, which are traded daily and are identical. Location also plays a key role in valuation. However, since property cannot change location, it is often the upgrades and improvements to the property that can alter value.
We often work with clients who have never ordered a commercial real estate appraisal and they do not know what to expect.
Generally, commercial appraisals take anywhere from two to four weeks to complete. Timing usually depends on the complexity of the appraisal assignment and the availability of information for the appraisal.
The cost of an appraisal depends on the scope of work to be completed. As such, we provide free quotes for each appraisal assignment. Call us for a free quote today.
