Economic Principals use in Appraisals


Real property appraisals utilize a number of economic principals.  Supply and demand, competition, conformity, change, anticipation, externalities and balance are some of the economic principal considered during the analysis of markets.  Substitution is the principal upon which the sales approach is bases.  Opportunity cost, increasing and decreasing returns and surplus productivity are considered in the income approach and in the highest and best use analysis.  Contribution is considered within the cost approach analysis.


Appraisal reports also consider the value / cost / price concept.
