Our expert commercial real estate valuation and appraisal services work for you

At Avison Young Canada, our best-in-class technology speeds up the process while our personalized and responsive service walks you through every step. It’s an appraisal process that provides true value.


How do you determine the value of a commercial property?

This is a process that involves both physical inspection, data collection, financial and legal analysis. At Avison Young, our process involves:

  • Sending an expert appraiser to the property to conduct an inspection
  • Analyzing the subject property and other financial documentation
  • Modelling a cash flow or stabilized operating statement
  • Evaluating daily market data to establish more accurate comparisons and projections

How accurate and reliable are commercial real estate appraisals?

Very accurate, and made more accurate with the incorporation of current market data. Our accredited professionals deliver accurate and current market data with a quick turnaround time, allowing you to execute other business demands.

What makes one commercial property appraisal better than another?

Apprasial reports might seem similar, but the process and reliability will be different. Some of the key distinguishing factors include:

  • Speed. How quickly will your report get into the hands of the people requesting it? Your mortgage approval can hinge on this. Our appraisal teams are comfortable with quick turnarounds and tight timelines.
  • Reliability. Does your appraiser have a positive reputation with your banker? If you have an appraisal team that major banking institutions rely on, that can speed up the approval process.
  • Services. This is a relationship business. Is your property advisor responsive, flexible, and there for you? Creating a true partnership makes a big difference. 
  • Technology. The otherwise paperwork-heavy process is sped up by our use of technology. We streamline the appraisal process to alleviate the back-and-forth and simplify the process for you.
