Specialty and Unique

Unusual properties can be difficult to value as the use may be very specific to individuals or organizations.  Valuations can be done on any urban or rural property throughout Manitoba using a variety of approaches.  These types of valuations are quite in-depth and will be done by one of our specialists in that property type. These properties include but are not limited to:

  • Churches / Places of Worship
  • Some Mixed Use Properties
  • Mobile Home Parks
  • Colony and Communal Assets (such as Hutterite Colonies)
  • Municipal and governement properties

These appraisals can be used for a number of purposes including the following.

Pre-Listing and Pre-Sale Appraisals:
An objective and independent appraisal provides vendors, purchasers and realtors with real estate value certainty. Everyone involved can have peace of mind going into a real estate transaction, that fair market value has been established by an appraiser who is a member of the Appraisal Institute of Canada of which includes all the appraisers in our firm.

Mortgage Financing:
Obtaining a loan to assist your real estate purchase or renovation requires your financial partner to make lending decisions. The value of the real estate has an important role in whether or not the loan can be approved, the terms of approval and the pricing. An informed decision to obtain an appraisal report helps both parties work together by bringing certainty to the property value. You have other things to do than wonder if there is enough security for the loan. Our firm can help you get the answers you need within a time frame that reflects our commitment to you.

Estate Appraisals:
In Manitoba, the courts rely on CRA or AACI appraisal reports to assist in making the important decisions needed to settle the estate. We have completed many of these assignments for both individuals and law firms.
