Our property reports analyze both real property, intangibles *(FF&E), and on-going concerns (Business Value) relative to the asset being investigated.

As a leading company in real estate appraisals, Appraisals By Michael works to provide award-winning service to all of its customers. Not only do we specialize in residential property appraisal, but we also provide our services for commercial properties across Atlanta and Atlanta Metro.

Commercial appraisals cover a range of services. After a thorough inspection, we will investigate the current economic situation in relation to your home as well as the market area and an in depth description of your property.

Unlike residential appraisals, we look into to the intended use of the property in question and survey the need for it in the community. This will help determine the commercial property’s value. After researching the property’s highest and best use, we can then provide you with a credible appraisal report.

Appraisals By Michael offers its customers the opportunity to receive one of three different types of appraisals. These include a Restricted-Use appraisal, a summary appraisal, or a self-contained appraisal.

·         Restricted-Use Appraisal – the shortest type of appraisal report, with a limited amount of reasoning, analysis and date. This appraisal type comes with supporting documentation preserved within the appraiser’s files for future reference.

·         Summary Appraisal – This particular type of appraisal report is the most common, as it gives a complete summary of the reasoning, analysis and supporting documentation relevant to the entire appraisal and valuation process.

·         Self-Contained Appraisal – This appraisal report provides the client with the most in-depth analysis of all three appraisal types. It includes all the reasoning, analysis and supporting documentation that may be used in the valuation process.

We specialize in portfolio valuations and work to assist you in feasibility, market studies, gift and estate taxes, tax assessment and appeals, bankruptcy and acquisition or disposition.

Appraisals By Michael has experts in these specific types of appraisals which will spend the necessary time to efficiently determine the value of the subjected property. We are proficient in appraising:

-          Hotels

-          Churches

-          Apartment complexes

-          Office buildings

-          Public buildings

-          Gas stations

-          Shopping centers

-          Industrial buildings

Depending on the specific type of commercial property we are valuating, Appraisals By Michael will use one of three different appraisal methods in order to effectively provide you with an accurate summarization of your home’s value. Each method illustrates your individual property type and approaches it according.

Cost Approach

As one of the rarest methods used, this approach works under the assumption that the value, the replacement cost and the cost to the construct the property in question are the same. One must possess a comprehensive knowledge of both construction and material costs in order to complete this type of appraisal approach.

Sales Comparison/Market Approach

This method is easily the most popular appraisal approach, as most are already familiar with it. It is the accepted method for appraising residential real estate, and involves investigating properties with comparable characteristics that are found within the same market area as properties sold recently. The appraiser compares the properties in question, then deducts value from the subject property. This method is usually used for an investor who is seeking conventional financing.

Income Capitalization Approach

This approach is used as a short-hand method used by appraisers for real estate investors to define the value of a certain property, by determining its income in comparison to similar properties.
