Appraisal Methodology
In the appraisal of commercial & industrial personal property (machinery, equipment & business assets) there are three (3) generally accepted approaches to value (market, cost & income approaches).  Two (2) of which are widely utilized (market & cost), with the third (income) being used in special circumstances.

The most widely used and accepted approach is the market approach.  This approach considers prices recently paid (or currently asked) for similar items with adjustments made to indicated market prices to reflect certain conditions of the comparables in contrast to the subject items.  This approach is appropriately employed when valuing assets which are commonly bought and sold in arm's length transactions.

The second most widely accepted approach is the cost approach.  This approach is utilized when valuing assets not commonly traded.  In such situations, the cost approach is generally the only reliable approach to value.  Under this approach, the cost to reproduce or replace the assets in question is considered.  From this amount, an allowance is deducted for the total loss in value, as of the effective date of valuation, due to any depreciation or obsolescence present, whether arising from physical, functional or economic causes.

The least utilized approach to value for machinery & equipment is the income approach.  This approach is applicable when an income & expense stream can be identified (and isolated) for the subject asset or grouping of assets.  This approach considers the value of an asset or grouping of assets in relation to present value of the future economic benefits derived from ownership.  This is normally measured by capitalizing the future benefits into an indication of value.

Depending upon the situation surrounding a valuation and the data available.  My associates and I will help you sort through this methodology to a clear understanding of the value to be estimated and the approaches to be applied.

The types of data utilized in the performance of machinery & equipment and business personal property appraisals vary widely depending upon the specific appraisal problem.  These sources include the following.

● Prices recently paid for similar items.

● Current listing prices for similar items.

● Recent auction results.

● Published price guides.

● Catalog prices.

● Dealer quotes.

 

My associates and I subscribe to numerous print media and online databases for new and used pricing information.  Resources for this data are always expanding, given the reach of the information age.  This all goes together to form a solid basket of market information to form the basis of estimated values.  Each written reports will list the specific references for the engagement that were relied upon for pricing information.

There are two (2) basic types of appraisals performed for machinery & equipment.  These include "desktop appraisals" and "field appraisals".

A "desktop appraisal" does not require a physical inspection of the subject assets.  In this type of analysis the appraiser relies upon listing and illustrative information supplied by the client to identify the assets to be appraised.  The appraisal analysis and report are performed "at a distance" from the appraiser's office.

A "field appraisal" involves an inspection of the subject assets.  In this type of analysis the appraisers gathers data in the field and reconciles it with the client supplied information.  This type of analysis is much more detailed in scope, given the field inspection component.

There are two (2) basic types of written appraisal reports produced for machinery & equipment appraisal assignments.   These include the following; 1) the "restricted appraisal report" narrative, 2) the "appraisal report" narrative.

 

A "restricted appraisal report" narrative presents "statements & basic illustrations" relative to the data, reasoning, and analyses that were used in the appraisal process to develop the opinion of value.  Supporting documentation concerning the data, reasoning, and analyses are typically enclosed within the file for the assignment.  This report is suitable for "internal uses only" by the named client.  It is not suitable for intended uses where third party users may need to review the report.

 

An "appraisal report" narrative presents "summary discussions & illustrations" of the data, reasoning, and analyses that were used in the appraisal process to develop the opinion of value.  Supporting documentation concerning the data, reasoning, and analyses are typically enclosed within the addenda of the report (and more fully documented in the the file for the assignment).  This report is suitable for a number of intended uses and is appropriate when third party users may need to review the report.

 

Fees & Timing
Typical fees for assignments can range widely dependent upon the scope of the analysis and type of report agreed upon with the client.  An indication of typical fee ranges in noted as follows.

Machinery & Equipment Assignments

● Small sized shops & companies ($750 to $1,500).

● Medium sized shops, companies & plants ($1,500 to $3,000).

Timing for completion of assignments can range from a few days to a month, dependent upon the size & complexity of the engagement.  A solid fee & timing quote can be provided with some basic information about the appraisal assignment and asset pool to be valued.
