Valuation and Advisory

Getting values right


An accurate valuation is essential in validating a potential investment or securing the debt and equity financing to support an investment strategy. Throughout the process of an acquisition and correct disposition, we will partner closely with our Valuation team to ensure an accurate valuation that reflects a solid understanding of the property and the broader market dynamics. Whether you require a single asset valuation, a comprehensive portfolio valuation, a lease vs. buy analysis or arbitration and consulting, our valuation experts will deliver the insights you need through clear, concise and timely reporting.

Arriving at an opinion of a property’s value is a complex and disciplined process that can significantly impact your business. A well supported appraisal is often a necessary step in securing a loan, choosing the best asset for your portfolio and closing a sale. Our Valuation and Advisory services deliver insight into a property's fundamentals, its competitors and the overall market dynamics affecting value, now and in the future. We believe that a valuation can be a strategic asset for investors and owners, provided that reporting is clear, prompt and addresses the big picture. We go the extra mile to deliver for our clients, whether this means meeting a tight deadline or working with a complex and challenging property.

Getting the valuation right would be impossible if it wasn't for our people. We have the best Valuation and Advisory team in the country. Our experts will provide you with a suite of offerings, such as single asset valuations, portfolio valuation, right of way valuation, lease and cost analysis, litigation support and feasibility studies. We continue to attract the valuation industry’s leading professionals and provide a full range of expertise across all commercial property types nationwide. Over the past 20 years, we have valued everywhere and every kind of property.

We always try to match our clients’ requirements, whether for a longer and more substantial explanation of the valuation process, or for a more concise and accurate text approach of the estimates. The amount of time required to complete a commercial property appraisal varies depends on the scope of work. While we recommend planning for between two and three weeks, please contact us to discuss your assignment needs. We routinely complete accelerated timeframes, and will strive toward completing within your required timeframe.

Appraisers are held to a strict code of ethics as determined by the CMVM, which requires that all appraisals be unbiased and based on credible information, in order to produce a well supported opinion of value. We follow the regulations and directives required by our clients, whether they are the CMVM Regulations, Insurances, Banking or International, such as TEGoVA or RICS. But we think out of the box too! This is an evolving business, where we seek to test new approaches. Notwithstanding, we don't believe in creative valuation!

Our clients expect and deserve service excellence, which at a minimum includes the delivery of high quality, well supported appraisal reports on time, and a responsive and accountable professional team. All of our appraisals are evaluated and approved by an experienced review team to ensure you receive clear, concise, and timely appraisals. We recognise that superior technology is not enough, our managers and professionals stand committed to our clients’ success.
