Our team has extensive experience related to appraisal and valuation methods for supply chain real estate and industrial properties and one of our core strengths. Our team is based in Dallas, TX but strategically connected globally to provide industrial property appraisal and valuation services and local market experts around the globe. Industrial valuations performed include a long list of warehouses, truck terminals, manufacturing facilities, industrial land, storage yards, cold storage food processing buildings, flex buildings, and more.
Warehouse, truck terminal, manufacturing facility, distribution center and industrial land appraisals and valuations might seem more basic than other property types; however, these properties have unique characteristics which can create challenges throughout the valuation process. One warehouse is not the same as the next warehouse. One LTL truck terminal is not the same as the next one. FTL truck terminals are extremely complicated to value.
Characteristics that need careful attention include: loading infrastructure, fire protection system, power service, truck court depth, clear height, truck maneuvering distance, loading capacity, truss height, office space percentages, excess land, floor thickness, land to building ratio, slope of access to the site, etc. These items are important to analyze when evaluating comparable properties to determine valuation.
