Real Estate Appraisal

A real estate appraisal is a valuation placed on a property by an appraiser.  Unlike shares of stock were the value can be found from the last trading price on an exchange, real estate trades infrequently and each property has its own features that give it value.  The job of the appraiser is to account for these differences in features, comparing them to similar recent sales, best use, income generated and replacement costs to arrive at the real estate appraisal.

In residential real estate the comparison approach is used most often.  Similar homes that have recently sold in the same market are compared to the property and the value is adjusted for more or fewer amenities, better or worse location, condition and other differences.

The income approach to real estate appraisal applies mostly to rental or commercial properties.  The appraised value may be arrived at by determining the amount of net income the property will produce over the term of several months or years.
