The appraisal of office complexes often involves the
evaluation of multitenant, multistory and multi building properties, or at
least properties with some of these characteristics. While some office
complexes are owner occupied or single tenant properties, the majority are
rental properties with multiple tenants. This requires the use of the Income
Approach to Value, and occasionally the Cost and Sales Comparison Approaches as
well. Many, if not most, office leases are relatively short term leases of
fewer than five years. It is not uncommon to see two, three and five year
leases with tenant options for renewal. Rarely, but on occasion, we find
long term office leases of 10 or 20 years.
Factors such as occupancy percentage, location,
architectural style, building age and condition, accessibility and visibility
must also be considered in the appraisal of Office Complexes. The appraisal of
Office Complexes is considered more challenging than that of a single office
building and requires a Certified General Appraiser, if not an appraiser
with a commercial appraisal designation as well.
