Rome Machinery & Equipment Appraisals

Rome Machinery & Equipment AppraisalsRome is located at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and was built on seven hills with a river running between them.  This was an inspiration for the name and is a tribute to the Italian city of Rome.  There is even a statue of Romulus and Remus in Rome Georgia that is a replica of the statue in Rome Italy, acccentuating the correlation between the two cities.  In 1922 a rayon plant was constructed by the American Chatillon Company in conjuction with the Italian Chatillon Company and it was Benito Mussolini who sent the statute to Rome Georgia with the inscription “From Old Rome to New Rome” on it.  The statue was meant to be a sign of prosperity and was placed in front of city hall.  However, during World War II, the statue was removed due to low morale and was replaced with the American Flag.  However, it was restored to its original location in front of city hall in 1952.

We contemplate three different approaches to value when looking at equipment to establish it’s is value.  These include the Market Data Approach, the Cost Less Depreciation Approach and the Income Approach.  Our certified appraisers have the skill to correctly determine which approach to value is the best fit for 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 itemized easily.  However, there are circumstances that make sense for the income approach to be utilized for an equipment appraisal.
