- Orange Health Care / Healthcare Facilities

Many things must be considered in a medical related appraisal report. Are there any non-medical occupants in the building? Where is the nearest hospital? What is the condition of the building? Where is it located? Also, because the medical industry is heavily regulated, there are a number of financial and legal issues to take into account as well.

Orange California Eminent Domain Just Compensation Appraisal

Dave Collins Property Appraiser Logo

Collins and Associates helps determine just compensation for eminent domain cases near Orange, Orange County, California.

What is the Definition of Eminent Domain

Federal, state, and local governments may take or regulate private property through their power of eminent domain.

Eminent Domain Clause in the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution

The Fifth Amendment to the US Constitution states in part: “...nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” It requires government to provide just compensation to the owner of the private property to be taken. A variety of property rights are subject to eminent domain, such as air, water, and land rights. The government takes private property through condemnation proceedings. Throughout these proceedings, the property owner has the right of due process.

Examples of Eminent Domain Public Use

– Fire Stations
– Libraries
– Police Stations
– Roads
– Schools

Eminent Domain Condemnation Proceedings

Condemnation proceedings vary according to state and federal laws. A proceeding does not require court involvement if the condemnor and landowner enter into a contract for the taking of the property for a public use. Condemnation usually consists of two phases: proceedings that relate to the right of the condemnor to take the property, and proceedings to set the amount of compensation to be paid for the property taken. The commencement of the proceedings does not curtail ordinary use of the condemned property by the owner as long as the use does not substantially change the condition of the property or its value.

Eminent Domain Private Property Rights

The private property owner has the right to due process during condemnation proceedings. He or she must be notified in a timely manner and must be given a reasonable opportunity to be heard on the issues of whether the use is public and whether the compensation is just. Due process considerations mandate that the landowner receive an opportunity to present evidence and to confront or cross-examine witnesses. The owner has an automatic right to appeal.

Valuation Standards

Fair Market Value – a value of a business determined between a willing buyer and a willing seller both in full knowledge of all the relevant facts.
Investment Value – a value a business has to a particular investor.
Intrinsic Value – the measure of business value that reflects the investor’s in-depth understanding of the company’s economic potential.

Business valuation results can vary considerably depending upon overall goals. In an actual business sale, it would be expected that the buyer and seller, each with an incentive to achieve an optimal outcome, would determine the fair market value of a business asset that would compete in the market for such an acquisition. If the synergies are specific to the company being valued, they may not be considered. Fair value also does not incorporate discounts for lack of control or marketability.

Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP)

Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) is the appraisal report standard for real property, personal property, intangibles and business valuations in the United States. USPAP was first developed in the 1980s by a joint committee representing the major US and Canadian appraisal organizations. While USPAP answers a specific regulatory need in the US, other professional organizations throughout North America, South America, Europe, and Asia have adopted these standards. Since 2006, USPAP has been updated in a 2 year cycle, which begins on January 1 of even number years. While USPAP provides a minimum set of quality control standards for property appraisals in the US, it does not prescribe the specific methods to be used. USPAP simply requires that appraisers be familiar with and correctly utilize those methods which would be acceptable to other appraisers familiar with the assignment at hand and acceptable to the intended users of the appraisal. USPAP directs this through what is called the Scope of Work rule. At the onset of an assignment, an appraiser is obligated to gather certain specified preliminary data about the project, such as the nature of the property to be appraised, the basis of value (e.g. market, investment, impaired, unimpaired), the interests appraised (e.g. fee, partial), important assumptions, and the effective date of the valuation. Based on this and other key information, the appraiser relies on peer-reviewed methodology to formulate an acceptable workplan.

Appraisal Report Types

Uniform Residential Appraisal Report (URAR)

A Uniform Residential Appraisal Report (URAR) is one of the most common forms used in real estate appraisal which was created to allow for standard reporting and analysis of single-family dwellings. It is also suitable for a building in a planned unit development (PUD). It is not meant to be used for appraisals of manufactured homes or condos.

Uniform Residential Appraisal Report (URAR) Requirements

– Interior and exterior inspection of subject property.
– Street map that shows location of subject property and all comparable properties used.
– Exterior building sketch of improvements that indicates dimensions.
– Clear, descriptive photographs of subject property and comparable sales used.
– Subject: Basic information such as client’s name, address, legal description, owner’s and/or borrower’s names.
– Contract: Information on contract for appraisals in which a change of ownership is to occur.
– Site: Data on size, shape, zoning, access to utilities, and FEMA flood-zone information.
– Improvements: Physical characteristics of property, such as age, materials, and condition.
– Sales comparison approach: Grid analysis.

Single User Restricted Use Appraisal Report

A Single User Appraisal Report, Restricted Appraisal Report, or Restricted Use Appraisal Report contains minimal detail and is intended to be relied upon by the client only, not any other party. It may not be fully understood without secondary documentation, which is only available to the client. Although its use is uncommon, it does serve two very specific purposes – increased privacy and reduced costs. Several situations in which this type of appraisal report is useful is related to legal action, tax issues, or private business decisions. The Restricted Appraisal Report has one primary goal – to determine the value of the property. It is not intended for public use. It is specifically designed to let the client know the valuation of the property – and that is it. The side benefit from this type of report is that it requires less time to produce, therefore it is a less expensive alternative to a full report.

The minimum reporting requirements of the Restricted Appraisal Report are:

– Identity of client and any intended users, by name or type.
– Statement of use restriction that limits use of report only to client.
– Statement of intended use of appraisal.
– Identify of subject property.
– Identify property interest being appraised.
– Statement of type and definition of value.
– Effective date of appraisal and report.
– Identify scope of work used to develop the appraisal.
– Statement of methods, techniques used, and conclusions.
– Reference the workfile.
– Signed certification in accordance with Standards Rule 2-3.

Summary Appraisal Report Definition

A Summary Appraisal Report summarizes is the most common appraisal report within the industry. It satisfies the needs of lenders and large institutions, without getting into the high level of detail in other types of appraisal reports. Summary Appraisal Reports can have one, two, or three approaches to value, depending on the situation of the property and use of the appraisal. In contrast with a Restricted Use Report, a Summary Report provides more information. In comparison to a Self-Contained Report, a Summary Report provides less information.

A Summary Appraisal Report contains the following:

– Identity of client and any intended users, by name or type.
– Intended use of appraisal.
– Summarize information sufficient to identify property involved in the appraisal, including relevant physical and economic characteristics.
– Property appraised.
– Purpose of appraisal, including type and definition of value.
– Effective date of appraisal and date of report.
– Summarize sufficient information to disclose to client and any intended users of scope of work used.
– State all assumptions, hypothetical conditions, and limiting conditions that affected the analyses, opinions, and conclusions.
– Summarize information analyzed, procedures followed and reasoning that supports the analyses, opinions, and conclusions.
– Use of property as of date of value, and rationale for best use of property.
– Explain any departures from specific requirements of STANDARD 1 or 7, and reason for excluding any of the usual appraisal approaches.
– Signed certification in accordance with Standards Rule 2-3 or 8-3.

Narrative Appraisal Report

All real estate appraisals in the United States are reported as either a Narrative or Form format. This is true for both residential and commercial property. A Narrative appraisal report is descriptive in nature. It could be compared to a white paper, research paper, essay, or similar document. The Narrative style includes visual aids, such as pictures, maps, tables, grids, etc. This report style is often 60-120 pages for a commercial property. Due to the nature of developing this report type, it typically takes longer to develop, and as a result, is the more costly, but much more thorough, option. The Narrative style is most commonly used for commercial appraisals. Almost without exception, lenders will only accept an appraisal of a commercial property via a Narrative format.

Technical Appraisal Report or Review

The methodology for performing a technical review of an existing appraisal falls into two different types: desk review and field review. The mechanics of the technical review will vary depending upon the scope of the assignment, the client, policy requirements, or the nature of the property appraised. Although not all reviewers organize their reports in the same manner, most review reports contain certain common features. The required common features are specified in Standard 3 of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). A technical review appraiser is an appraiser who examines the reports of other appraisers to determine whether their conclusions are consistent with the data reported and with other generally known information.

Orange Automatic Car Wash Valuations and Appraisals

Automatic Car Wash ValuationAutomatic car washes consist of tunnel-like buildings into which cars are driven through. The car is put into a line-up called the stack or queue. The stack moves sequentially, so the wash knows what each car purchased. The tire sensor lets the car wash know where the wheels are and how far apart they are. The rollers come up behind the tires, pushing the car through a detector. The equipment arches vary in number and type. A good car wash makes use of many different pieces of equipment and stages of chemical application to thoroughly clean the vehicle.

The carwash will typically start cleaning with pre-soaks applied through special arches. The vehicle next encounters tire and wheel nozzles, which the industry calls CTAs (Chemical Tire Applicators). These will apply specialized formulations, which remove brake dust and build up from the surface of the wheels and tires. The next arch will often be wraparounds, usually made of a soft cloth, or closed cell foam material. These wraparounds rub the front bumper and, after washing the sides, will follow across the rear of the vehicle cleaning the rear. Past the first wraps or entrance wraps may be a tire brush that will scrub the tires and wheels. There may also be rocker panel washers which are shorter in size that clean the lower parts of the vehicle. Most rocker brushes house the motor below the brush hub so they don't inhibit cloth movement and allow the brush to be mounted under a support frame. The car may then pass through a second set of wraparounds. This may also be where high pressure water streams are used to clean difficult to reach parts of the vehicle. Next the vehicle is treated with a final rinse. Many car washes utilize a "spot free" rinse of soft water, that has been filtered of the salts normally present, and sent through semi-permeable membranes to produce highly purified water that will not leave spots. After using spot free water, the vehicle is finished with forced air drying, in some cases utilizing heat to produce a very dry car.

Orange Self Service Car Wash Valuations and Appraisals

A self-service car wash is a simple and automated system that is typically coin-operated. Newer self-service car washes offer the ability to pay with credit cards. The vehicle is parked inside a large covered bay that is equipped with a trigger gun, a high-pressure sprayer and a scrub foam-brush. When customers insert coins into the controller, they can choose options such as soap, tire cleaner, wax or clear water rinse, all dispensed from the sprayer, or scrub the vehicle with the foam-brush. The number of coins inserted determines the amount of time customers have to operate the equipment. These facilities are often equipped with separate vacuum stations that allow customers to clean the upholstery and rugs inside their cars.

Orange Touchless Car Wash Valuations and Appraisals

In order to avoid scratching paint, touchless or touchfree car washes were developed. A touchless car wash uses high water pressure to clean the vehicle instead of brushes, minimizing the chance of surface damage to the vehicle. There are five primary factors to cleaning a vehicle successfully using a touchless system. These five factors are water quality, water temperature, chemistry, time, and water pressure generated by the equipment. If these factors are all set properly, vehicles will come out clean and shiny without the chance of vehicle damage caused by brushes.

Orange Full Service Car Wash Valuations and Appraisals

At full service car washes, the exterior of the car is washed mechanically with conveyorized equipment, or in some cases by hand, with attendants available to dry the car manually, and to clean the interior (normally consisting of cleaning the windows, wiping the front and side dashes, and vacuuming the carpet and upholstery). Many full service car washes also provide detailing services, which may include polishing and waxing the car's exterior by hand or machine, shampooing and steaming interiors, and other services to provide thorough cleaning and protection to the car.

Orange Date of Death Valuation for Real Estate, Property Tax Appraisal

Dave Collins Property Appraiser Logo

Based near Orange, Collins and Associates provides Date of Death Valuation for Real Estate and Property Tax Appraisals. When calculating the date of death valuation for federal estate tax purposes, there are two different values that can be used: the date of death value and the alternate valuation date value.

Orange Date of Death Valuation for Real Estate

The date of the death valuation is the fair market value of the assets valued on the decedent’s actual date of death, including:
- Bank, investment and retirement accounts
- Personal effects, business interests and real estate

For publicly traded stocks, he average of the high and low prices on the date of death multiplied by the number of shares the decedent owned is used. If the death occurs on a day when the stock market is closed, then the average prices for the stock on the trading days immediately before and after the date of death are used.

For personal effects, business interests and real estate, the appraised fair market value on the date of death is used.

Orange Alternate Valuation Date

The alternate valuation date value is the fair market value of the all of assets included in the decedent’s gross estate six months after the date of death. Under the Internal Revenue Code, the Personal Representative is allowed to choose whether to use the date of death values or the alternate valuation date values.

Why would the Personal Representative choose the alternate valuation date values instead of the date of death values? Because if one or more of the estate assets have lost a significant amount of value during the six months after death, then the estate tax bill can be reduced. If the alternate valuation date values are used, however, then all of the assets must be revalued, not just ones that have gone down in value.

Based near Orange, California, Collins and Associates provides Commercial Real Estate Appraisal Reviews.

What is a Commercial Property Appraisal Review

Commercial property is any real estate or asset used to conduct business, such as: land, building structures or rental units. A commercial review on narrative and form appraisal reports requires not only knowledge of OTC, FDIC, NCUA, FNMA, IRS, and USPAP guidelines, but it also require years of experience.
