There are two valuation approaches, income based and sales comp based. Talk to Ryan d'Aprile, he can help point you in the right direction.

Catalina, if you are a broker, go and see Ryan for guidance.

Have him go over all the different things to look for in this type of property.

Dear Caralina,

If your managing or sponsoring broker (or neither) are available to help you with this, then you might want to consider signing up for a class at the Realtor School at the Chicago Association of Realtors specifically on valuation or CMA preparation.

Good luck to you.

It is very hard to pull comps on these. They tend to be few and far between. They are also hard to finance. You also need to keep it for at least 5-10 yrs because they usually are hard to resell. THe storefront is often hard to rent.

Take the income approach on it. That will give you a better idea.
