The Report

The Canadian Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (CUSPAP) refers to types of Appraisal Reports including: A Narrative Appraisal Report, and a Form Appraisal Report.  The Narrative Appraisal Report is defined as a comprehensive and detailed appraisal report.  The Form Appraisal Report is a standardized format combining check-off boxes and narrative comments. 

Our clients require a full Narrative Report format.  The document is generally 50+ pages and can include up to three (3) distinct accepted methods of valuation.  The selection of a relevant methodology depends upon the nature and characteristics of the real estate under consideration.

Opinion of Value

An Opinion of Value is different from an Appraisal Report  

This is a brief report, completed by a Real Estate Professional, that provides a value range based on current market sales as a refection of the local market.  Examples of purpose of an Opinion of Value Report are personal decision making considerations such as:

  • Relocating your Business
  • Selling your Asset
  • Leveraging your Equity
  • Estimating your Net Worth
  • Pre-purchasing and Pre-sale Consultation
