About CRA

At COMMERCIAL REALTY ASSOCIATES (CRA), we excel at accurately determining the value of a property or business, whether for buyers, investors, or sellers. Our partners and associates, including appraisers and institutional analysts, follow Generally Accepted Accounting Procedures (GAAP) and Uniform Standards for Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) to assess value. We use various methods, including but not limited to:

  • Comparable Sales Approach
  • Income Capitalization Approach
  • Replacement Value Approach

For income-producing properties, our analysts conduct historical and pro forma analyses, calculate internal rates of return, and even predict potential tax impacts for future sales. We also pride ourselves on our market analytics and location analysis techniques, which are among the most comprehensive and robust in the industry.
