Sample Appraisal: Valuation of Loss Due to an Easement
The property is a c. 1892 three-story Victorian corner rowhouse with a front and side yard enclosed by a traditional wrought iron fence.
The property is in an area zoned C-2-A (a low density strip retail zone) that permits new construction to a density of 2.5 times the land
area for mixed commercial and residential use. The building as it stands is at a density of 1.5, allowing for a 1.0 increase in density.
The use of the building at the time of donation was residential. The highest and best use of the building is its conversion to office use,
at least on the first and second floor. There has been a demonstrated demand for small blocks of office space in the area. After using
the Cost Approach method and comparing the building to other sales in the area, the Before Valuation was established at $700,000.
The fair market value of the property with an easement in place was determined to be $597, 000.

  Before Valuation =                        $700,000
  Market Value after Easement =             $597,000
  Value of in-kind contribution
  (Easement) =
   $103,000
