We have a seasoned team of professional Real Estate Appraisers. All of our appraisers are members of the Appraisal Institute of Canada and carry Errors & Omissions insurance.

Calculating the Market Value

Direct Comparison Approach

In its most basic form, this approach is built on the premise that the market value of a property is partly derived and comparable to surrounding properties.

Cost Approach

Since the market obviously relates to cost, this approach takes into account and analyzes market trends as defined by two specific elements: Land value and land improvements, minus depreciation.

Income Approach

Generally reserved for valuations for commercial and investment properties, determining the market value using the income capitalization approach relies on the perspective that the potential earning power of real estate is significant when calculating its actual value. Income capitalization techniques are used to analyze sales data that measures potential profit and loss.
