Professional Appraisals

AppraisalSince 1986, Canam’s appraisal experts have delivered timely, well-rounded professional appraisals in Canada. Our practices include careful consideration of all factors including the assets themselves, the client’s industry and prevailing market conditions. We conduct management interviews, perform financial due diligence and inspect inventory as part of our appraisal methodology.

Types of Appraisals include:

Forced Liquidation Value
Orderly Liquidation Value
In Place/Going Concern Value
Desktop Valuations
Fair Market Value

Typically, a value achieved under stress circumstances through a public auction is processed within a short period of time, generally 30-45 days. Many factors are used to determine the value and should be discussed with the appraiser; these may include typical usage.
