Appraisal Valuation Process

There are multiple steps in the appraisal valuation process. Some reports can be completed in a couple of weeks while others can take months. Here's a simplified look at how an "appraisal report" is prepared.
  1. Identify Problem
    • An appraiser must define the who, what, where, when and why of the subject property
    • Who are the clients and intended users
    • What is the purpose of the assignment (i.e. valuing the "as is" value or "as complete" value after a renovation or improvement to vacant land)
    • Where is the subject and what are its characteristics (the neighborhood, site and building)
    • Why is the property being appraised (refinancing, potential sale, etc.) 
  2. Determine Scope of Work
    • An appraiser defines the scope of work by answering how the problem will be solved.
    • How much research and analysis is necessary via a market analysis and highest and best use analysis and which valuation approaches should be used
    • Three Valuation Types
      • Income Approach​: A value is found by anticipating future benefits (income) from property ownership.
      • Sales Comparison Approach: A value is found by analyzing recent sales or current sale offerings of similar buildings in the subject's market area.
      • Cost Approach: A value is found by adding the estimated value of the land with the cost of building construction minus depreciation.
  3. Apply the Solution
    • Also called the final reconciliation of value.​
    • Appraiser examines the valuation types used and determines a final value.
