Minnesota Real Estate Appraisal Services Can Also Provide Multi Family Income Property Appraisals

Minnesota Real Estate Appraisal Services, a residential, commercial & industrial appraisals company that is based in Roseville, MN, wants to point out that although they also perform some single family home appraisals, their main residential appraisal work has to do with multi-family residential properties. And as always, market trends and location are vital and subject to change. Thus, they always keep themselves up-to-date regarding these factors to be able to provide authoritative appraisals for multi-family residential properties throughout most of Minnesota.

Form 1025, which is the “Residential Income Property Appraisal Report,” is for income properties and it is used considerably by financial institutions and other investors for the purpose of real estate purchasing and refinancing. This report is usually made up of a letter of transmittal; description of the site; neighborhood analysis; rental income analysis; description of the improvements; income approach; cost approach; reconciliation; direct sales comparison approach with comparable sales; definition of market value; operating income statement; contingent and limiting conditions; certification; exterior and interior photographs of the property; Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act (FIRREA) addendum; comparable sales location map; exterior photographs of all comparable sales used; and a sketch of the property indicating room layout.

These multi-family income appraisals are performed for multifamily residential buildings, such as apartment buildings, mixed use buildings, apartment community that is a collection of apartment buildings, rowhouses, bedsits, condominiums, cluster houses, housing cooperatives, mother-in-law apartments, microapartments, rooming houses, and more.

Multi-family residential buildings are also known as multi-family income properties because these are the buildings that real estate investors buy to be able to earn a regular income from the units. Because multifamily properties are not for owner occupancy, unlike for single family homes, appraisers will have to consider another factor, particularly with regards to assessing the real estate financing agreement used for the property. Appraisers have three common methods for appraising multi-family properties, which are: the cost approach; the sales comparison approach; and the income approach. While all of these appraisal methods are accurate method to determine the value of a multifamily home, the appraiser will need to choose the most appropriate approach for each particular property.
