Real Estate Valuation Services

Driving real value in real estate valuations of a single property or substantial portfolio

RSM’s long history of leadership serving the real estate industry means we understand real estate valuations. Whether you are in the real estate business or need a real estate valuation in another industry, learn how RSM has the depth and experience to help.

When it comes to valuations of real estate , volatility is the only constant. Values in one market can vary widely from those in another. As entrepreneurs use technology to disrupt industries, they also can affect associated real estate values—look no further than the effects that online retailing or Airbnb have had on the retail and hospitality industries. Keeping up with accounting rules is also vital. New changes to accounting for leases mean new real estate valuation concerns, even for companies that didn’t think they had real estate issues.

RSM understands real estate valuations

For decades, we’ve been meeting the audit, tax and consulting needs of real estate companies and meeting the real estate-related needs of companies in a broad spectrum of other industries. We understand real estate valuation from every perspective and offer a full range of services, including:
