Because valuation issues are often complex, dispute resolution often requires the coordination of multidisciplinary teams. We strongly recommend to our clients that they engage valuation experts as early as possible in the dispute resolution process. We are convinced the great number of lengthy and costly disputes could be avoided or could be resolved more quickly, if the parties involved were in possession of proper valuation services earlier in the process. Unfortunately, all too often, parties in dispute are under the mistaken impression that because of the cost, valuation services should not be obtained until late into the process. There are, in fact, numerous consulting services available to the parties involved in the dispute that are both appropriate for use early in the dispute and are relatively inexpensive.

Business Interruption Consulting, Damages Estimates
Federal Appraisal LLC provides consulting and appraisal services to individuals and companies suffering from business interruptions and damages from natural and man-made disasters and accidents.

Given our extensive experience and training, we are particularly well qualified to provide our consulting services. You may think of consulting as a service where we provide part of what may normally be provided in a standard appraisal report. For example, you may need financial modeling tools and/or the market data to be imported into the models. Likewise, you may need market rent data or yield rate data, which is something we normally collect in an appraisal report.
You may think of our consulting services as process-oriented, such as co-sourcing and outsourcing.
Perhaps you need support staff for your special real estate project. Perhaps you need market studies, feasibility studies, or economic impact studies. Our consulting services can help you with your corporate real estate acquisition, disposition, or site selection due diligence.
The list of possible consulting services that Federal Appraisal & Consulting LLC provides is nearly endless, because often the services include scopes better defined by you, the client.
