Quality begins with experience and education. All licensed appraisers must regularly complete continuing education classes and seminars. We only take these classes and seminars from the Appraisal Institute (AI), the largest international association of real estate appraisers. AI classes set the standard for continuing education through top level instructors and course material. Learning from the best allows Capital Valuation Group, LLC to provide the best quality in our appraisal reports.
Capital Valuation Group, LLC is also actively involved in several local organizations for commercial real estate professionals. Through these groups we interact with brokers, investors and other market participants. This industry interaction and insight allows us to provide the highest quality of analysis within our reports.
Within the appraisal reports completed by Capital Valuation Group, LLC, quality is reflected in the research and analysis of the subject property, research into the local market and firsthand confirmation of all comparison data. A report by a licensed appraiser who completes every element of the report, from touring the subject property to analyzing the data to writing the report, also preserves quality. This method, rather than a report assembled by multiple people, sometimes in multiple states, ensures the analysis reflects a complete and thorough understanding of the subject property, surrounding markets and comparison data.
Often the appraisal is one of the last steps in completing a commercial transaction and delivery of that report on time is extremely important. A late delivery of a quality report is no good to anyone. When we quote a delivery date, we deliver on or before that date. We won’t quote a turn time we can’t provide. And, when unforeseen circumstances absorb more time than we expected, we work the extra hours to deliver a quality report by the quoted delivery date.
