Why hire a MAI vs. appraiser with minimum (state license) qualifications?

At a minimum, all states require appraisers to be state licensed or certified in order to provide appraisals to federally regulated lenders. Commercial real estate appraisers must hold the “Certified General” state appraiser license but less than 1% hold the MAI designation awarded by the Appraisal Institute. Designated members of the Appraisal Institute are known for their knowledge and experience as well as their unbiased and objective approach to real property appraisal and analysis. By engaging the services of a designated member of the Appraisal Institute, you can benefit from the most skilled and experienced real estate appraisal professionals in the country.

Lenders, government agencies, courts, corporations, investors and individual property owners continually seek our the opinions of designated Appraisal Institute members to guide their real estate decisions because they know members are true professionals who have made a commitment to being the best in their field.

Real Estate Advisory and Consulting Services

Our commercial real estate advisory, due-diligence and consulting service business is built upon our valuation expertise and enables us to bring an independent assessment to a variety of complex scenarios. Because our consulting services are not driven by commission or profit incentives, we are able to avoid conflicts of interest. These services are highly valued by our clients and offer cost-effective market and transactional analysis.

Consultation can be as simple and brief as a one-hour review of a tenant lease to an in-depth feasibility study requiring extensive primary research. In all cases, we are able to provide our clients with the necessary resources to make a more informed decision. Some of the most common areas of consultation include:

  • Due Diligence
  • Feasibility and Market Studies
  • Highest and Best Use
  • Litigation Support
  • Strategic Planning
  • Tenant Lease Analysis
  • Transactional Advisory
  • Acquisitions and Financial Analysis
  • Segregation of Business Enterprise Value (Goodwill) From Personal/Real Property

Some of these and other types of real estate advisory and consulting assignments can be provided for a fixed fee or billed on an hourly basis.
