Development is an idea that comes to fruition when consumers – tenants or owner- occupants acquireand use the space put in place by the development team. Land, labor, capital management andentrepreneurship are needed to transform an idea into reality. Developers balance the needs of diverse providers and consumers of the real estate product.

Appraisers can be a part of every stage of the property development process. Appraisers are primarilyresponsible for valuation of the project. They estimate the market value of the property and typically preparea formal document called appraisal. Appraisal may be necessary when a developer transfers ownership, seeksfinancing and credit, resolves tax matters, and establishes just compensation in condemnation proceedings.Appraisers can also evaluate a project as input to market studies and feasibility studies.
