The need for real and personal property valuations are important for tax and financial reporting, property insurance, replacement budgeting, and asset management. Real property consists of industrial, commercial and municipal land, building improvements, and easements. Personal property refers to machinery, equipment, inventory, vehicles, trade fixtures, furniture, etc. We have the personnel, expertise and resources to provide detailed personal property analyses and valuations using a number of perspectives. In addition to valuations, we can effectively market used machinery and equipment to potential buyers nationally and internationally.

Equipment Brokerage:

We can market your equipment for sale through our National and International network where we qualify prospective buyers, handle all showings, title work and closings, and provide professional representation. Typically the items we appraise have been sold through auctions, equipment dealerships or owners themselves. Brokerage is the wave of the future for this type of equipment and now the systems are in place to make this a cost-effective method.


Fair Market Value Defined: “The most probable price which a property should bring in a competitive and open market under all conditions requisite to a fair sale, the buyer and seller each acting prudently and knowledgeably, and assuming the price is not affected by undue stimulus. Implicit in this definition is the consummation of a sale as of a specified date and the passing of title from seller to buyer under conditions whereby: (1) buyer and seller are typically motivated; (2) both parties are well informed or well advised, and acting in what they consider their best interests; (3) a reasonable time is allowed for exposure in the open market; (4) payment is made in terms of cash in United States dollars or in terms of financial arrangements comparable thereto; and (5) the price represents the normal consideration for the property sold unaffected by special or creative financing or sales concessions granted by anyone associated with the sale.”
