The Main Methods of a Residential Property Valuation Here, we want to give you a taste of what it takes to complete a property valuation, and how Mashvisor ties into the mix. Each one of these property valuation techniques is considered to be one the most commonly used. Mashvisor makes your life that much easier as a real estate investor by giving you what you need. Here is how just one of our features, real estate investment analytics, ties into the two residential property valuation methods. Method of Property Valuation 1: The Sales Comparison Approach The name of this approach says it all. This technique uses market data of investment property listing prices to estimate the value of your income property. In order to do this real estate property valuation, you need to compare your investment property to other similar income properties that have recently been sold. This is where Mashvisor comes in. Finding real estate comparables, also known as real estate comps, can be timely and really needs some attention to detail. Like most real estate investors believe, time is money. The more time you can save, the more money you can save. Mashvisor is able to give you those real estate comps with just the click of a mouse. You are able to see a rating of just how similar these real estate comps are to your investment property. Talk about saving time and money! No need to make the adjustments or find real estate appraisers, Mashvisor has got it down for you. Get the idea of what the real estate comps in your area are looking like. This property valuation method can help you get your house market value in no time. This approach is most commonly used for single family homes, as there are normally various comparables available to analyze and compare. Method of Property Valuation 2: The Income Approach The next of our property valuation models that we would like to mention is the income approach. This property valuation methodology mainly focuses on calculating the current house market value of your real estate property. This is done by taking the net operating income the investment property generates, divided by the capitalization rate.
