The Appraisal Process

The appraisal process includes the research, compilation and analysis of all pertinent data as it relates to your specific requirements. Kohlen & Co Appraisals provides several types of reports in standardized or narrative format.

Interior Inspection

A list of all assets and defects are objectively analyzed and compiled in a detailed written report.

Property Condition

Includes the specifics of construction, property layout, number of rooms and specific features, equipment; improvements and renovations.

Neighborhood and surrounding areas

An assessment is made on a property's proximity to services, facilities and amenities as they may (or may not) relate and affect its market value.

Property Classification

Public records are analyzed to confirm sales and make comparisons in the particular Cariboo Regional District / Central and North Coast Regional Districts region. A range of public records and sources are used including zoning records, tax data, professional associations and other applicable publications.

Calculating the Market Value

Sales Comparison

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 Profit

Generally reserved for valuations for commercial and investment properties, we will often use the income approach with multi family unit valuations up to four unit holdings.
