Valuations: What Is My Property Worth, and How Is That Determined?
A valuation is an impartial estimate or opinion of value, usually written, of an adequately described property, as of a specific date, and supported by the presentation and analysis of relevant data.
It is the job of the Valuer to determine these values by gathering, analysing and applying information pertinent to a property.

The professional opinion of the Valuer can influence the decisions of people who own, manage, sell, purchase, invest in and lend money based on the security of real estate.  The Valuer is an impartial third party in the real estate process protecting Real Estate buyers from overpaying for property, as well as lenders from over financing buyers.

What a Valuer does:
A Valuer can be called upon as a consultant or as a valuation specialist to provide an opinion on:

  • Current value of property being bought or sold
  • Future value of property being built
  • Value for mortgage or lending purposes
  • Value to assist in investment decisions
  • Value of property involved in a legal dispute
  • Value to properly measure property tax assessments, capital gains and other taxes
  • Value of property to determine compensation when property is expropriated
  • Consulting - feasibility studies, lease & rental rate analysis, and highest and best use studies.

What does a Valuation Report include?

  • The estimate of value
  • The effective date of the valuation
  • The certification and signature
  • The purpose of the valuation
  • The qualifying conditions
  • The condition of the neighbourhood
  • An identification of the property and its ownership
  • An analysis and interpretation of the data and the assumptions made
  • The processing of the data by one or more of the three approaches to value
  • Other descriptive support material such as maps, plans, charts, photographs, etc.

How is value estimated?

There are three basic methods used to arrive at an indication of value:
The Cost Approach estimates the cost to build a new building identical to the subject being appraised, at current prices, subtracting accumulated depreciation and adding the estimated land value.

The Income Approach relates to income-producing property and is based on the theory that value is the present worth of the income stream which the property is capable of producing when developed to its Highest & Best Use. The net operating income from the property is capitalized into value by an appropriate method and rate.

The Direct Comparison (Comparative) Approach is based on the theory that an informed purchaser would pay no more for a property than the cost of acquiring another existing and equivalent property. The value estimate is based on the selling price and offerings of comparable properties in the subject's market.

To arrive at a final conclusion of value, the appraiser selects the value indicated by the approach most appropriate for the property and supported by the most reliable, factual and relevant market.
