Retail Strip Appraisal, North Carrollton

Mary Ellen Moser Appraisal, Carrollton, Commercial, DFW, Recent Appraisal Projects, Retail

Neighborhood retail appraisals require analysis of visibility, access, traffic count, parking, and nearby draws, such as a high school, a sports complex, fast food, or grocery. Sale prices of comparable properties must be adjusted for these influences. The dental office or vet near a school usually will appraise higher than the one in the quiet neighborhood. 

Office Condominium Appraisal, Frisco

Mary Ellen Moser Appraisal, Commercial, Condo, DFW, Frisco, Recent Appraisal Projects

There are 2 kinds of office condos around Frisco and McKinney: turnkey and shell. 

The turnkey projects come ready for clients—or patients. The shell type are less expensive, but the buyer must finish out. Sales comparison and income approaches to value need adjusting accordingly. Medical-office condo values are enhanced if mixed uses exist in the same project. Some have restaurants and retail. Others have the doc, the dentist, the CPA, the attorney, and the vet, all in one project. Vacancy rates impact the income approach in these new projects. read more

Mary Ellen Moser Appraisal, Commercial, DFW, Office, Recent Appraisal Projects

The appraisal of this HEB Midcities commercial flex space included a building refurbished with state of the art training and media areas—but only partially. The owner got rid of the inefficient atrium and remediated the asbestos and lead. Cleaned up two floors “to the studs.” But two floors remained, and elevator replacement. Moser Appraisals provided an “as-is, retrospective” value opinion, for further financing. We accessed both commercial cost and sales data sources.
