Seminar Description

Sometimes the assignment is to appraise a C-Store or a full-service hotel or a veterinarian clinic wherein the enterprise is a going concern and the real estate has relatively little adaptive reuse. Sometimes the law and/or the lender requires you to separate the intangibles from the dirt and brick and mortar. This is an introductory 3-hour seminar on separating intangibles from real estate and other tangible assets. It includes definitions, topic significance, authorities, and business appraisal methodology.

Learning Objectives

  • To familiarize appraisers with current thinking about certain assets claimed to be intangible personal property and not taxable as real property according to Georgia law.
  • To lay a foundation for appraisers to anticipate and respond to objections from tax assessors and lenders who must focus on tangible assets rather than the value of a going concern.
  • To gain a brief exposure to professional societies who have written materials on the topic.
  • To review relevant definitions of terms and concepts.
  • To provide an example of a real property type, a convenience store, which contain intangible assets and identify what those assets may be.
  • To introduce methodologies for appraising these assets, both real and personal (intangible), drawing from the teachings of both real property and business appraisers.
  • To identify sources of data useful in non-real estate appraisals.
  • To identify sources of personnel who can be called upon to affiliate with real estate appraisers and provide needed competence.
