appraisals-purposes and uses

Asset Appraisal is a method of assessing the value of a company's real property, equipment, furniture, furnishings, machinery, vehicles/trucks or other assets used in the company's operations. An asset appraisal is commonly performed for a number of reasons (see uses below). Asset appraisals may consist of both subjective and objective measurements. Asset appraisals may be needed as part of valuing a company. The underlying assets of a company must be stated in fair market value terms when a business valuation is performed. Common methods for determining an asset's value include comparing it to similar assets (market approach) and ajusting its cost (cost approach). Many times banks are required according to their charters, lending laws or SBA requirements to have the underlying assets of a business appraised.

"I had the opportunity to work with Lance on four separate equipment appraisals at the community bank I previously worked for. His evaluations were thorough, professionally presented and provided all the pertinent information. The lender I currently work for has its own in-house appraisers but I would I would definitely recommend his services for equipment and/or company evaluations for individuals or companies that are in need of these types of reports for lending or purchasing needs."
