Market analysis is essential to real estate appraisal, and only an experienced, trained valuation professional can provide the type of in-depth study required to identify the supply and demand for a class of property in a specific market and assess the marketability of a unique property in that market.
This second edition of the classic reference is a three-part text that presents the principles and techniques of market and marketability analysis, illustrates these concepts with case study applications, and explains how the information developed in the appraiser’s market analysis contributes to the highest and best use conclusion and the application of the three approaches to value. The case study properties examined in the text include an existing shopping center, office building, industrial property, and apartment complex as well as vacant land and a vacant shopping center.
Market Analysis for Real Estate presents market analysis as an integrated process and demonstrates how market and marketability techniques are applied to actual situations that appraisers encounter in performing valuations and complex, stand-alone market studies.
