Valuation

Valuation has always been at the heart of what Archstone Group stands for. Our appraisal process is to provide a realistic analysis and interpretation of market data to arrive at a fair market value. Our team has experience in ordering, reviewing, and performing appraisals in over 50 countries around the world. Our clients include governments, non-profits, corporations, and private individuals who have stakes in international markets and understand the value of having a real estate appraisal performed to North American standards. We also have multi-lingual abilities and can provide appraisals in dual languages or in local languages.

We are familiar with the various international standards used around the world including, IVS and USPAP. If you are looking for services that meet these standards, or need to adopt the practices recommended in Red book, Yellow book, or a standard unique to your home country, we can adopt and advise on the best way to incorporate them so the final appraisal product will meet the needs of your stakeholders. Examples of our assignments include large tracts of land both for development or for conservation or agricultural uses; complex cashflow driven investments such as commercial office buildings, shopping centers, or logistical warehousing properties; Condominium developments; hospitality and resort projects including islands; special uses; and all types of residential properties including luxury compounds.

Advisory

Advisory often comes in partnership with valuation services. Advisory services aim to help our clients gain a greater understanding of a property as well as strategies to position it to its highest and best use into the future. The highest and best use of a property refers to the generation of the greatest overall value to its owner. In addition to highest and best use, we can also be of assistance in raising capital, finding brokerage or legal representation in your area, or finding/creating a competent team for these services.

Advisory services will be tailored to your specific needs. We understand that the mission of our clients are different. We will work to fully understand your short, medium, and long-term goals and help you leverage the real estate in a way that is maximally productive for your mission. Our reports are highly customized to your needs and focus on the real estate related problems, challenges, and questions you may be facing.
