Who Needs A Commercial Appraisal Report?

Updated: Jan 16, 2023

A commercial appraisal report is a document that provides an assessment of the value of real property that is intended for residential use with more than five units or any other commercial use. The process of generating the report involves carefully analyzing various factors related to the property in order to develop an opinion of its value.

The appraisal report is used by a variety of stakeholders, including:

Buyers and sellers of commercial properties: A commercial appraisal report can help buyers and sellers determine a fair price for a property. The report provides an estimate of the property's value, which can be used as a starting point for negotiations.

Lenders and investors: Banks and other financial institutions use commercial appraisal reports to evaluate the creditworthiness of a borrower. The report provides information about the property's income-producing potential, which helps the lender determine the borrower's ability to repay the loan.

Property managers and landlords: Commercial appraisal reports can be used by property managers and landlords to evaluate the performance of their properties. The report provides information about the property's income-producing potential, which can be used to set rents and manage expenses.

Government agencies: Commercial appraisal reports are used by government agencies to determine the value of a property for property tax assessment, eminent domain, and other purposes.

Appraisal Management Companies: Appraisal management companies use commercial appraisal reports as a way to support their clients such as banks and other financial institutions.

Attorneys: Attorneys involved in commercial property transactions such as lease disputes, eminent domain proceedings, and partition actions, also rely on commercial appraisal reports for the fair market value of the property.

It is worth noting that the stakeholders listed above are some of the main users of commercial appraisal reports, but there might be other parties that could use or need the report depending on the specific situation.
