Given the possibility of declines in the value of
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.
The seminar will be 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, based on the following circumstances:
The property is 50% vacant in a market experiencing
20% vacancy, thus necessitating the proper measurement of a rent-up adjustment
to be incorporated in all three approaches to value the property “as is”.
The market is forecast to experience on-going, but
temporary, external obsolescence based on a detailed fundamental market
analysis, which will be demonstrated using current methodologies and also
incorporated in valuations.
In addition, the case study property also
incorporates two other issues that will need to be addressed in the valuations.
One lease at the property was first negotiated when
the market was much stronger. The rent for this lease was recently reduced and
the term extended, in a so-called “blend and extend” renegotiation, but is
still above market, therefore necessitating a “property rights adjustment”.
Another lease includes an apparent higher than
market rent due to substantial landlord provided concessions, therefore
necessitating a measure of “effective rent” for purposes of forecasting the
rent at the time of lease renewal.
these issues will be discussed and then analyzed entirely in Excel, although
attendees do not need to be an Excel expert to benefit from the seminar.
