Appraisal Uses, Benefits and Purpose
An appraisal must have a reason or purpose for being done and this purpose must be clearly stated. This purpose allows the appraisal to have a meaning in content and a significance in result. The statement of the appraisal purpose is a declaration by an appraiser as to the sole objective in preparing the valuation report. The purpose must be clearly stated in a definitive fashion.
At a minimum, a narrative appraisal should consist of a cover letter of transmittal, a summary of the valuation conclusions, a discussion of the scope of the appraisal, an in-depth presentation of the valuation methodology, a statement of assumptions and limiting conditions, a certification along with a statement of the qualifications of the appraiser, the actual valuation process and conclusions, any exhibits that would be informative and any addenda appropriate to the appraisal.
