Land Value Estimator

A broader analysis that encompasses a wider range of variables must be studied by an appraiser when calculating values for vacant land. One of the key considerations is determining what the land can be used for, or the feasibility of the specific planned development. Once the ‘highest and best use’ is determined, the standard sales comparison method is used for market analysis.

Vacant land appraisals require more detailed information and a high level of expertise that may include trends in new construction and research on competitors in similar development markets in order to provide accurate cost and profit analysis reports.
