Independent real estate appraisers
and advisors providing consistent,
diligent and reliable valuation
solutions throughout the Calgary region since 2008.
Advantage Valuation, through its affiliation with Verra Group Valuation, forms part of a team having a broad scope of knowledge and experience, and benefits from access to national level data and knowledge.
We have provided appraisals and valuation services for litigation matters, as well as property assessment appeals.
PROPERTY DIVISION (matrimonial / estates)
We provide an unbiased opinion of value of the property. The valuation date can be current, or a retrospective value can also be prepared if a historical valuation date is required. As always, all valuation services provided are confidential.
When employees are transferred to a new location by their employer, the corporation may provide a guaranteed sale price. A relocation appraisal will be required, which provides a comprehensive analysis of what has transpired in the market to date, as well as taking into account the expected market conditions during the prospective marketing period of the property in order to establish an Anticipated Sales Price.
FORECLOSURES / BANKRUPTCIES
We are familiar with the foreclosure and judicial sale procedures in Alberta, and have experience providing appraisals and Affidavits of Value for both Plaintiffs and Defendants.
VerraGroup affiliates provide valuation services on a wide range of residential property types, including individual condominium units, townhomes, single family homes, semi-detached homes, duplexes, executive homes, country residential acreages, and leasehold properties, with nearly 20 years experience in the greater Calgary area.
Common uses for residential appraisal reports are outlined below:
An appraisal will provide you with the support and documentation you need for calculation of a capital gains exemption. And when changing the use of a primary residence to a rental property, it is a good practice to have an appraisal completed at that time, rather than having to obtain a retrospective appraisal some time in the future.
Advantage Valuation Group is included on the approved appraiser lists for a wide variety of major banks, mortgage insurers, and lenders, including alternative (non-prime) and private lending.
ATTAINABLE HOMES & LIBERTY
HOME OWNERSHIP PROGRAM EXIT

Reviews can range from a basic compliance review to a full, technical review, which is undertaken in accordance with Canadian Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (CUSPAP) and includes a review of the reports compliance with the appropriate standard, as well as an opinion of the suitability of the market data employed and the veracity of the conclusions. Further, a technical review will assess the highest and best use analysis, appraisal methodologies in the context of the Scope of Work and has a quality control function. Technical reviews may or may not include a site view. Often technical reviews are used for quality control, settlement functions or litigation.
