How much is my home worth or how much is my commercial property worth?


Technically speaking, property's value is defined as the present worth of future benefits arising from the ownership of the property.  An appraisal is an opinion or estimate regarding the value of a particular property as of a specific date.  

Market value is the most probable price that a property should bring in a competitive and open market under all conditions requisite to a fair sale, the buyer and seller, each acting prudently, knowledgeably and assuming the price is not affected by undue stimulus. Implicit in this definition is the consummation of a sale as of a specified date and the passing of title from seller to buyer under conditions  whereby:  buyer and seller are typically motivated; both parties are well informed or well advised,  and each acting in what he or she considers his/her own best interest; a reasonable time is allowed for exposure in the open market;payment is made in terms of cash in U.S. dollars  or in terms of financial arrangements comparable thereto; and the price represents the normal consideration for the property sold unaffected by special or creative financing or sales concessions granted by anyone associated with the sale.          

The Appraisal Process


An appraisal can be concluded based on typically all or 1 of 3 methods: The Sales Comparison Approach compares the most recent, similar and hypothetically competing properties that have sold in an open, competitive market, which is typically inclusive of a qualitative or quantitative analysis. The Cost Approach  can be concluded to determine a property's  replacement or reproduction cost, minus depreciation from all sources, plus current land value. Lastly the Income Approach  method is based on the relationship between the rate of return an investor requires and the net income that a property produces, after expense and any other losses. This method is used to conclude value of income-producing properties, no matter the property type.
