EXPERT SERVICES - EXPROPRIATION RELATED ANALYSIS
Accredited real estate appraisers are recognized by many courts as experts in matters related to real estate valuation. As such, we are often called on to undertake specialized analysis related to expropriation or other government or legislative related purposes.
Cost services include estimating the reproduction or replacement cost of built and site improvements for insurance purposes, as well as provision of cost and progress inspection reports associated with mortgage financing.
VACANT LAND VALUATION
HIGHEST & BEST USE ANALYSIS
Valuation of vacant land can be a complex function that is tied to the fundamental concept of Highest & Best Use.
In forming an opinion of the highest and best use, there are essentially four stages of analysis: the potential use must be physically possible and legally permissible, there must be a profitable demand for such a use, and it must return to the land the highest net return for the longest period of time.
SENIORS HOUSING VALUATION & FEASIBILITY ANALYSIS
Seniors housing valuation and feasibility analysis is a highly specialized field requiring extensive knowledge of the operational models associated with such facilities, demographic change, as well a thorough understanding of related health care policies.
In recent years we have completed valuations on a large proportion of existing personal care home facilities in all regions of the province, and have undertaken work in other provinces of Atlantic Canada. Our work has included market and feasibility studies, as well as 'as complete' enterprise valuations for financing purposes.
Provident VA employs a suite of advanced geospatial solutions that allows for use of geoenriched data for valuation, feasibility analysis, and strategic consultancy purposes.
In addition to enhanced valuation services, we are now able to offer tailored and specialized serviced to our clients using these tools, such as current demographic, housing, behavioural, and income-based analysis of specific neighbourhoods, regions or towns, as well as advanced location analysis, site selection services, among others.
