Learning outcomes
LEARNING OUTCOMES

List the five basic steps in the cost approach.

Define the terms reproduction cost and replacement cost, and explain their use in appraisals.

Name four methods of estimating costs and explain when each is used.

List the direct and indirect costs that make up a building’s total costs.

Name the important site, location, and design features that influence the construction costs of a building.


What does cost mean
WHAT DOES COST MEAN?

  • For Business and Accounting

  • COST =

  • Price

  • Wholesale Price

  • Retail Price

  • Original Price

  • Book Cost


What does cost mean1
WHAT DOES COST MEAN?

  • For Appraisal

  • COST =

  • Cost on Value Date

  • Typical Cost

  • Consumer Level Cost

  • Cost as New


Steps in the cost approach
Steps in the Cost Approach

Estimate the value of the land as if vacant and available for use. Generally, this is accomplished by the market comparison approach.

Estimate the total cost to reproduce or replace the existing improvements as of the date of value.

Decide on appropriate amounts for accrued depreciation (loss in the market value of the improvements).

Deduct the accrued depreciation from the cost new of the improvements.

Add the depreciated cost of the improvements to the estimated land value, in order to arrive at the property value as indicated by the cost approach.


Cost estimates in appraisals
COST ESTIMATES IN APPRAISALS

Generalized Economic Costs:

1. Cost levels as of the date of value, not “book” costs or historic costs for the building.

2. Typical costs to build a building, rather than the actual construction costs. These two costs could be the same, of course.

3. Costs that include all of the charges to the consumer, not just the cost to the developer or builder. All-inclusive costs are sometimes referred to as “turn-key” costs, where all that the first occupant has to do is to turn the key and move in.


Defining reproduction cost estimates
Defining Reproduction Cost Estimates

  • The cost of a duplicate or nearly identical structure, every physical component must be included.


Defining replacement cost estimates
Defining Replacement Cost Estimates

  • the cost to build a structure of similar utility.


Reproduction vs replacement cost
REPRODUCTION VS REPLACEMENT COST

Subject Property

Reproduce a Replica

Replace the Utility


Primary purposes of the cost approach
PRIMARY PURPOSES OF THE COST APPROACH

  • Value a New Property

  • Value Special Use Properties

  • Use as a Check Against Other Approaches


Cost estimating methods
COST-ESTIMATING METHODS

The comparative square-foot

(or comparative unit) method.

2. The unit-in-place method.

3. The index (or cost service index) method.

4. The quantity survey method.


Steps in the cost approach1
STEPS IN THE COST APPROACH


Four cost methods
FOUR COST METHODS

  • Comparative Square Foot

    • Price per square foot

  • Unit-in-Place

    • Price per section of improvements

  • Index

    • Price according to original cost

  • Quantity Survey

    • Contractor’s method

      • Carpentry (Rough & Finish)

      • Plumbing (Rough & Finish)

      • Grading (off and on Sites)

      • Electrical Work

      • Roofing, etc.


Direct cost elements
DIRECT COST ELEMENTS

Construction Costs Include:

  • Direct Costs

    • Labor

    • Material

    • Equipment

    • Design & Engineering

    • Subcontractor’s Fees


Indirect cost elements
INDIRECT COST ELEMENTS

  • Indirect Costs

    • Legal Fees, Appraisals, etc.

    • Interest

    • Insurance

    • Taxes

    • Overhead & Profit

    • Selling Costs


Primary cost variables
PRIMARY COST VARIABLES

  • What Affects Construction Costs?

    • Design or Use-Type

    • Construction Class

    • Quality

    • Size

    • Shape

    • Height

    • Yard Improvements

Using online cost services
Using Online Cost Services

The increased use of office computers and online data services by appraisers has extended to the task of cost estimating. A number of construction cost providers offer online services that can calculate and report building cost estimates upon order, using specifications that are input by the user.


Summary
SUMMARY

Cost estimating plays a role in each of the three approaches to value. In appraisals, the concept of cost is related to its economic impact. This means that cost estimates are made at price levels as of the date of value. Also, they must reflect the total amount of typical costs that are passed on to consumers. The cost approach is used primarily to estimate the value of nearly new, new, or special-use properties. It can also be a check against the other value approaches.

Manuals and cost services provide average cost figures for many types of buildings and can be expected to include photographs, specifications, and cost-estimating techniques as well.
