Business Valuations

The process and set of procedures used to estimate the economic value of an owner’s equity interest in a business. Valuations are used by financial market participants to determine the price they are willing to pay or receive to effect a sale of a business. In addition to estimating the selling price of a business, the same valuation tools are often used by business appraisers to resolve disputes related to estate and gift taxation, divorce litigation, allocate business purchase price among business assets, establish a formula for estimating the value of partners’ ownership interest for buy-sell agreements, and many other business and legal purposes such as in shareholders deadlock, divorce litigation and estate planning.



Consulting often involves the consideration of specific needs and objectives of the client and differs on a case-by-case basis. These services typically do not involve the development of an opinion of value, yet still offer valuable data to solve the problem at hand.


Market Studies

The study of influences upon client and/or consumer behavior and the analysis of market characteristics directly related to market trends. Market studies may include a forecast of general economic conditions as related to fundamental determinates of demand in a particular market. General economic conditions may include the study of demand for a specified type of real estate project in the future which may include as estimate of such things as absorption rates, current and forecasted market rents, supply and demand trends in a particular market, real estate appreciation and depreciation forecasts and trends, and current cost indexes and/or market trends.


Appraisal Reviews

The act or process of developing an analysis, recommendation, or opinion to solve a problem, where an opinion of value is a component of the analysis leading to the assignment results. An appraisal consulting assignment typically involves an opinion of value but does not necessarily consist of an appraisal or an appraisal review as its primary purpose.
