Mortgage Financing

Obtaining a loan to assist your real estate purchase or renovation requires your financial partner to make lending decisions. The value of the real estate has an important role in whether or not the loan can be approved, the terms of approval and the pricing. An informed decision to obtain an AACI report helps both parties work together by bringing certainty to the property value. You have other things to do than wonder if there is enough security for the loan. Our firm can help you get the answers you need within a time frame that reflects our commitment to you.

Replacement Cost and Reconstruction Cost Estimates

Condominium corporations are one form of commercial property ownership. Knowing that the office complex or warehouse site is not over-insured or under-insured helps establish accurate and cost effective insurance levels. Properly detailing the cost estimate for such commercial enterprises requires the skill of a trained AACI who has the leading and most updated costing software needed to get it right.

Expropriation

An owner recieves compensation when private property is acquired for public purposes. An AACI appraisal for the purposes of expropriation is distinguised from a routine appraisal by the rules that apply in estimating compensation. Whole Takings, Partial Takings and Injurious Affection on property not taken but affected by a taking, all require the expertise of a trained AACI to provide a clear understanding of the value loss and give expert evidence when needed.
