The value of a home or commercial property is determined by a number of factors. What is the location? How many square feet are in the home or building? Is there a pool, and what type of landscaping do you have? Are there any upgrades that have been made to the home or building? The answers to these questions will help us determine the true market value of your property.
We use several valuation methods including:
Comparable Market Analysis (CMA) – A report showing comparable properties sold in your area over a specific period of time with price ranges, details about each transaction (i.e., sold date, purchase price, address), and information about the property such as square footage, bedrooms/bathrooms/etc… The goal is to look at similar properties that were recently sold and use those as benchmarks for what your property should be worth based on location, condition and other factors.
Income Capitalization Method – A method used by lenders to determine how much income from rental property can be generated annually and then multiplied by an appropriate capitalization rate (cap rate) to arrive at the current value of the property. For example, if you were renting out your home.
There are many different ways to value real estate, and there are a number of different methods to do so. Some of these valuation methods can be used for residential properties, while others are more appropriate for commercial properties. Here is an overview of some of the most common real estate appraisal methods:
Sales Comparison Approach
The sales comparison approach involves comparing the subject property to similar properties that have recently sold in the same area. The goal is to determine a comparable sales price for the subject property. This method is typically used when there is a limited number of comparable sales available and when there is no other way of valuing the property.
The cost approach attempts to determine what it would cost today to replace or rebuild the subject property using similar materials, construction techniques and labor costs. The cost approach can also be used with land by estimating what it would cost today to purchase an equivalent tract of land. This method can be useful when trying to determine what a piece of real estate should sell for if it were vacant and free of any liens or encumbrances.
Income Capitalization Approach
The income capitalization approach involves using net operating income as the basis.
The most common methods for determining the value of a property are:
Market analysis. This is the most common method for determining a property’s value. It involves gathering data about similar properties that have sold within a certain time frame, calculating the average price per square foot or acre, and using this information to set a value on your home.
Income method. This method evaluates the income potential of a property relative to its expenses and other costs. For example, if you live in a rental house and pay $1,500 per month in rent, but could rent it out for $2,000 per month, then your house is worth $2,000 per month because it will be making an extra $500 per month over the amount you are currently paying to own it.
Cost approach. This valuation method estimates how much it would cost to replace your home with another identical one today based on its condition and amenities. This number can be adjusted according to location and market conditions (i.e., if building materials are more expensive in one area than another).
Real Estate Valuation Methods by Valueteam
The value of a property is determined based on the price that it would sell for in an open market. However, there are many different methods of determining the value of real estate.
Here are some of the most common methods:
- Market Value Analysis Method
- Comparative Sales Analysis Method
- Cost Approach Method
- Income Capitalization Method
Real estate valuation methods are used to determine the value of real property. The method used depends on the purpose for which the valuation is being made:
· For tax purposes, market value may be determined by comparing sales prices of similar properties in the area.
· For mortgage loan applications, lenders may require an appraisal based on an estimate of fair market value (FMV). This is often called an “appraisal” or “loan-to-value.” It is based on an analysis of comparable properties sold recently and an estimate of what buyers would pay for that property under current market conditions.
· In business transactions involving real estate, the FMV will generally be determined by negotiation between the parties involved.
