WHAT TYPE OF APPRAISALS DO WE PERFORM?
Since we work only for lenders, we provide appraisal reports based on what lenders need to know.
And what do lenders want to know?
Well, basically, lenders want to know what their collateral is worth in the event of a foreclosure or bankruptcy.
"Given a worst case scenario, what would be our gross collateral recovery?"
Now of course no lender in his/her right mind would lend money to someone knowing that a foreclosure was eminent. But, as all lenders know, some situations go bad.
It is this contingency that our appraisals address.
Market values, replacement values, or ongoing business values are of no significance to a lender given a “worst case scenario.”
Our appraisals give lenders two values:
Orderly Liquidation Value (OLV) and
These are defined as follows:
We realize we need to walk a fine line. Put too little value on the given equipment and the values may not meet lender requirements and the deal may fall through. Put too much value and a future liquidation may be disastrous. Having performed literally thousands of appraisals during our careers, lenders can be confident that we know our trade and will properly gauge all variables such as equipment & market conditions, industry health and other economic factors to accurately determine liquidation values.
Machinery & equipment appraising is not an exact science. Unlike real estate appraisals where there are disciplines that are followed to properly assess values, M&E appraisals when looked at from a liquidation standpoint, need to be formulated by appraisers who have knowledge and experience in liquidations and liquidating. A subjective assessment of the equipment from someone who knows what is involved in a liquidation is imperative to properly obtain realistic liquidation values.
Being industrial liquidators as well as appraisers, we are often called upon to liquidate items we have appraised in the past. Determining accurate values is the cornerstone of our business. Rest assured that the values we place on the machinery & equipment we are asked to appraise accurately reflects what current market conditions dictate as to actual values.
