The Magnitude of Random Appraisal Error in Commercial Real Estate Valuation
AbstractAnalysis of more than seven hundred pairs of simultaneous independent appraisals of institutional-grade commercial properties shows that the standard deviation of the random component of appraisal error is approximately 2%. Random appraisal error appears constant across both time and the institutional-grade investment universe, except during infrequent periods of real estate market gridlock. Most appraisal error is deterministic in nature, even though it usually appears random in routine cross-sectional analysis. Such appraisal error can be constrained and reduced by investment management control systems.
