Whether you are looking to buy or sell, knowing the economic value of a commercial real estate property is essential. That’s why in our first blog post, we talk about what a commercial real estate evaluation is and show you how to get one for free.
What Is a Commercial Real Estate Valuation?
A commercial real estate valuation is a process that helps you determine the economic value of a property.
When it comes to business, your decisions are only as good as the information you have at your disposal, and commercial real estate is no exception to this rule. Accurate valuations lead to better decisions when buying or selling properties.
There are different approaches when it comes to commercial real estate valuations. Here are some of the most common:
- Cost. With this approach, properties are valued by adding the price of the land the property is located on and the cost of building a similar property from scratch.
- Income capitalization. Here, the value of a property is calculated by dividing the Net Operating Income (NOI) of a property by its capitalization rate. This method is particularly useful to determine the income an investor can expect to generate from a property.
- Market value. This approach is based on data from comparable properties sold recently in the same market area.
- Gross rent multiplier. Also known as GRM, here the value of a property is obtained by multiplying annual gross rents by the Gross Rent Multiplier (GRM) of a similar property. The GRM is equal to the price of a property divided by its annual gross potential rent.
How to Get a Free Commercial Real Estate Valuation
Today more than ever, owners of commercial real estate properties preparing to sell should consider getting their properties valuated as soon as possible.
Valuations are high these days and interest rates are low. However, this is bound to end soon, as interest rates will rise probably in response to high inflation levels.
