Athens Machinery & Equipment Appraisals

Athens Machinery & Equipment AppraisalsAthens is a college town and is home to the University of Georgia.  The town developed in conjunction with the University as lots closest to the college were sold to raise money for the additional construction of the school.  When the first class graduated from the University of Georgia in 1804 there were only 3 homes, 3 stores, and a few other buildings facing what is now known as Broad Street.  Other than the university, Cotton Mills were the prime source of commercial and industrial growth.  Athens has a rich culture with a thriving music scene.   Today Athens has more than 65 downtown shops and a plethora of restaurants, coffee shops and nightlife which contributes to its successful small business economy.

Athens, GA Machinery & Equipment Appraisals – The Right Approach for Your Needs

When considering the value of machinery and equipment during an appraisal, there are three approaches that we consider. These include the Cost Less Depreciation Approach, the Market Data Approach and the Income Approach.

The cost less depreciation approach is when the current cost of an asset is determined after deducting for functional and economic obsolescence, physical deterioration and depreciation.  It is based on the principle of substitution which asserts that an informed buyer will not pay more for an asset than the cost of an asset that can be replaced with the same function.

The market data approach is when the market value estimate is based upon prices being paid in actual and current market listings.  The latest transactions are examined to determine a probable value.

The Income approach considers revenue streams in order to determine a present value.  This approach is often difficult to execute since revenue streams for single components cannot be cataloged easily.  However, there are circumstances on occasion where it makes sense to apply the income approach to an equipment appraisal.  Our certified appraisers have the skills to accurately determine which approach to value should be applied to your equipment appraisal.

No matter which approach to value is utilized for your appraisal you can rest assured that the team at Turner Business Appraisers has the acumen to appraise your equipment accurately and efficiently.
