Dalton, GA Machinery & Equipment Appraisals – Three Approaches to Success

When we are examining equipment in order to determine it’s is value, we must consider three different approaches to value. These approaches include the Market Data Approach, the Cost Less Depreciation Approach and the Income Approach.  Our certified appraisers are trained to correctly determine which approach to value needs be applied to your equipment appraisal.

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 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 Income approach considers revenue streams in order to determine a present value.  This approach is often difficult to execute since revenue streams for single assets cannot be cataloged easily.  However, there are circumstances on occasion where it makes sense to apply the income approach to an equipment appraisal.

Our appraisers have earned their credentials from the NEBB Institute.  The NEBB Institute is an establishment that is recognized nationwide and internationally for their high standards and comprehensive training program in the equipment appraisal industry.  Requirements for achieving the CMEA designation include participating in a thorough training course, passing a written exam, and preparing a sample appraisal report that will be graded by 2 certified appraisers and a peer review committee. The training that our appraisers received has prepared them to handle any appraisal circumstance with proficiency and poise.
