About this Seminar
EXTREME APPRAISING: Valuing CRE in a Down Market
Given the possibility of declines in the value of commercial real estate (CRE) as a result of COVID-19, this seminar will address critical issues, often misunderstood even by experienced commercial appraisers, in valuing property in a declining market. Instruction is based on a hypothetical case study property, a multi-tenant office building. The primary focus of the case study is to value the property “as is” and “when stabilized”, using all three valuation approaches under circumstances dealing with vacancy, external obsolescence. We will also explore issues surrounding lease negotiations / renegotiations, property rights adjustments and effective rent.

- Overview of the Case Study
- Purpose and Summary of the Market Analysis
- Addressing Above-Market Lease with a Property Rights Adjustment
- Valuing the Property "As Is" Taking Into Account the Rent Up Adjustment and External Obsolescence
- Measuring Effective Rent for a Lease with Concessions - Valuing the Property “When Stabilized” Taking into Account “External Obsolescence”
- Reconciliation and Wrap-up
