Corridor Appraisal Services
Our expert appraisers use a time-tested methodology in the valuation of railroad corridors and affiliated properties.
We consider highest and best use, analyze the subject’s physical, legal and economic characteristics, and use aerial mapping and geographic information systems to document the specifics of every assignment.
Our approach to valuation combines practical judgment with an in-depth understanding of the railroad market, land use, and industry standard methodology.
Our valuations incorporate data on sales transactions, transportation trends, court rulings, and business data - not to mention our own research from the field. We develop valuation conclusions that are meaningful and can stand up to the highest levels of scrutiny.
