Our appraisals follow the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) as promulgated by the Appraisal Standards Board of The Appraisal Foundation. USPAP are the generally accepted standards for professional appraisal practice in North America. As certified appraisers, and by following the standards set forth by The Appraisal Foundation, our clients are assured that they are receiving a highly qualified opinion as to the value of their property.

Value is typically defined in one of the following three ways (although unique situations do arise):

Fair Market Value Installed for Continued Use - the estimated amount, expressed in terms of money, that may reasonably be expected for a property in an exchange between a willing buyer and a willing seller, with equity to both, neither under any compulsion to buy or sell, and both fully aware of all relevant facts, including installation, as of a specific date, and assuming that the earnings support the value reported.

Orderly Liquidation Value- the estimated gross amount expressed in terms of money, that could be typically realized from a liquidation sale, given a reasonable period of time to find a purchaser(s) with the seller being compelled to sell on an "as-is, where-is" basis as of a specific date.

Forced Liquation Value- the estimated gross amount expressed in terms of money that could be typically realized from a properly advertised and conducted public auction, with the seller being compelled to sell with a sense of immediacy on an "as-is, where-is" basis, as of a specific date.
