FORCED LIQUIDATION VALUE (Auction)
A professional opinion of the estimated most probable price expressed in terms of currency which could typically be realized at a properly advertised and conducted public auction sale, held under forced sale conditions and under present day economic trends, as of the effective date of the appraisal report. Conclusions taken into consideration are physical location, difficulty of removal, physical condition, adaptability, specialization, marketability, overall appearance and psychological appeal. Further, the ability of the asset group to draw sufficient prospective buyers to insure competitive offers is considered. All assets are to be sold on a piecemeal basis 'as is' with purchasers responsible for removal of assets at their own risk and expense. Any deletions of additions to the total assets appraised could change the psychological and or monetary appeal necessary to gain the price indicated.

 
ORDERLY LIQUIDATION VALUE

Further, the ability of the asset group to draw sufficient prospective buyers to insure competitive offers is considered. All assets are to be sold on a piecemeal basis 'as is' with purchasers responsible for removal of assets at their own risk and expense.

NEW REPLACEMENT COST VALUE

If such an item is unavailable, the appraiser has used his or her best judgment in estimating a value as of the effective date of the appraisal.

 
DESKTOP OPINION
A professional opinion of the appropriately defined value, expressed in terms of currency to be realized by the sale of assets, in which the opinion is generated from lists and/or other informational materials supplied to the appraiser and evaluated without the benefit of an actual on site inspection.
