Real estate assets do not have any static value in time. Fluctuations in value may be attributed to the economic context as well as the conditions of the building itself. Numerous factors involved in the valuation process could produce varying conclusions. It is increasingly difficult to distinguish between a market value and a standardized value on the municipal assessment roll.
Only experienced analysts are capable of issuing opinions of value based on the highest professional standards. Our role is to assist you throughout a process that includes:

  • Negotiating value in connection with a pre-assessment;
  • Performing a preliminary analysis of the fairness of the approach used to challenge a municipal assessment;
  • Providing support for any request to review the municipal assessment roll;
  • Negotiating an agreement with the municipal assessment department;
  • Providing support to prepare the initial claim;
  • Acting as mediator and taking part in any hearings.
