The need for appraisals arises from the heterogenous nature of property as an investment class: no two properties are identical, and all properties differ from each other in their location - which is one of the most important determinants of their value. So there cannot exist a centralised Walrasian auction setting for the trading of property assets, as there exists for trade in corporate stock. The absence of a market-based pricing mechanism determines the need for an expert appraisal/valuation of real estate/property. Although some areas require no license or certification at all, a real estate appraisal is generally performed ...
BP Gulf Oil Spill Financial Loss Claims May Require Certified ...
The BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill has affected countless small and large businesses operating in the coastal Gulf State regions. If you own a business that has suffered a loss due to the rupture and release of oil in the Gulf of Mexico, then you may have a claim to present to British Petroleum as well as other insurance and emergency loan organizations. The greater your company’s financial loss, the more important it is to provide legal, court-approved documentation outlining the value of your business.

Are Valuation Reports Recyclable? « Business Valuation Insight
We are all aware that the paper that a valuation report is printed on is indeed recyclable but what about the content printed on that paper.  In most cases, relying on a recycled valuation might be hazardous to your legal health. Recycling valuation reports pose two major problems: First, the value of a business or other asset can change dramatically over time — in some cases, overnight. Second, a valuator’s methods and conclusions depend to a large extent on the valuation’s purpose. So, unless you need to value an asset “as of” the same time and for the same purpose, reusing a previous valuation can lead to inaccurate results, ... market research, surveys and trends


Litigation Support, Business Appraiser, Valuation Expert ...
The challenge of a business valuation expert is to provide, what can often be complex and detailed, information in a cogent manner within a brief period of time.  The characteristics of closely-held corporations, including the lack of a ready market for the stock, make the task of valuation a particular challenge to the lawyer”.  When an appraisal is needed   Most statutes are general; therefore, judicial precedent may be a determinative factor in what methods to value are used and are governed by the individual state.

I know that it's not an exact science and that there are many techniques to calculate the value of a business. Techniques based on multiple factors and parameters. I was wondering if in this jungle of methods and proposals there is something useful to calculate, in a very rough way, the range of value of a business starting from a simple parameter: the revenue. In particular, I am interested in understanding what can be (always in a very approximative way) the minimum - I emphasize "minimum" - value of a small business that is 5 years old, doesn't have particular profits and losses, doesn't have particular ...
Negotiating Business Deals: Funeral business valuation, time value ...
Several years, (1989) ago I gave 20% of my Sec.1244 Stock (New York State)in my 30 call a year funeral business to an employee as a gift.  It was given in anticipation of him continuing the business after my retirement. He was fired from the firm for insubordiante behaviors and is now demanding a cash settlement for his 20% or 40 shares of the 200 shares of the business.  I have no idea how a valuation of the funeral firm works regarding good will in the community.  He was paid for all his services rendered and has no invested interest financially in the firm. The only physical assets include two used vehicles and ...
