As the expression goes, the value of real estate is in the eye of the beholder. Ultimately, the value is whatever the market is willing to pay. While income producing properties, particularly with credit worthy tenants, may be fairly routine to value based on current rate of return demands in the market, non-income producing properties may be more speculative.
For example, even the most seasoned appraiser may struggle with finding comparative sales for a property. A landowner might see their property value go up exponentially “if only” the city council will allow for a zoning variance. Many an owner believes their property is in the “path of progress”, but when? Is it reasonable to value a property “as stabilized” if it is only forty percent leased? These are the types of questions we will consider.
