Commercial Real Estate Valuation


Commercial Real Estate Valuation

As a commercial property owner, it is crucial to know the value of your assets. We understand that you may have different needs, which is why we offer various valuation services we customize to meet your requirements.

The type of valuation you require will depend on several factors, such as whether you are the sole tenant of the property or if there are other tenants paying rent.

Additionally, the purpose of the valuation and the level of detail you need will also influence the type of valuation.

We can provide a fast and accurate valuation of your commercial property in California to suit your specific needs.  Just give us a call or send an email through this website.

What is a Commercial Broker Price Opinion (BPO)

A Commercial Broker Price Opinion (BPO) is an alternative to an appraisal that is flexible, easy to understand, and cost-effective. It’s available in four approaches to value and may include two types of inspection – a drive-by looking at the exterior only or a personal visit that looks at the exterior and the interior.

The first is a sales-only approach which just looks at recent sales and does not consider the income portion. The second is a sales/income approach.
The sales approach analyzes the property’s cash flow potential to determine the final price, while the BPO compares the property’s rent roll to similar rental incomes and provides an opinion on market rent and potential gross income.

When it comes to commercial property, you have four BPO options to choose from, including:

  • Commercial BPO
  • Commercial Real Estate BPO – Drive by
  • Commercial Real Estate BPO – Sales and Income – Drive by
  • Commercial Real Estate BPO – Sales and Income – Interior

Each report takes approximately 15 days to complete, and prices range from $360 to $710, depending on the type of BPO report you choose.

Commercial Real Estate Property Evaluation
