  • Floodplain and wetlands
  • Zoning analysis
  • Deferred maintenance
  • LEED certification or “green” building features
  • Supply and demand
  • Proposed and competing projects
  • Highest and best use analysis
  • Contributory land value
  • Cost new and financial feasibility
  • Functional and external obsolescence
  • Comparable sales

Powell Banz Valuation is available to provide appraisal and valuation services on commercial properties for use by lenders, financial institutions, attorneys, accountants, property owners, government agencies and municipalities, court systems, insurance companies, and more. We skillfully develop appraisals, appraisal reviews, feasibility analyses, highest and best use studies, rent surveys, market studies, and consultation.
