Understand Your Property Value in a Fluctuating Real Estate Market

Hawaii has always had one of the most vibrant and competitive real estate markets in the country. With more and more people moving to the islands annually, more businesses are popping up, so if you are looking to sell, you’re usually in a good spot.

However, understanding the value of your property will depend on various factors that can be very hard to keep track of. At George K. H. Lau & Associates, Inc., it is our job to understand market trends and communicate them to our customers regularly.

When it comes to appraising your business property, our experts are more than qualified to provide you with accurate information – so please let us know if you’d like to access our services.

Our Team will Take Charge of the Real Estate Appraisal Process

While the value of your business property will depend on various factors, two are more important than all the rest: location and potential for profit.


The value of the location of your property will depend on its proximity to other businesses and potential clientele. Commercial property owners will have an easier time renting out a business location in a shopping hub than somewhere more secluded, although this can be industry dependent.

Potential for Profit

Another factor that should be considered closely is how much potential income the property could bring in. For example, the larger the space is and the more it offers to different kinds of businesses, the higher its value will be.

Our team will heavily weigh the physical well-being of the property and its vulnerability to natural risks in the appraisal process. 

Hire the Right Appraisers – Hire Us

The accuracy of your appraisal will play a significant role in the real estate proceedings that follow. An inadequate assessment can have a property owner under or overvaluing their property – a mistake that could drive real estate agents and potential buyers away. Having a nuanced understanding of the value of your property and the reports to prove it will put you in good standing and help you achieve a profitable sale or settlement.

With years of extensive experience, George K. H. Lau & Associates, Inc. is very confident that we are the best choice to appraise your business property.

If you’d like to discuss the process in further detail, or if you have questions or concerns, we are always happy to chat with you. Reach us by phone or email or visit our FAQ page to find the information you seek!

Our detailed documentation reflects the value of a property within a standard and relevant set of aspects.

Elements of a Commercial Appraisal Service

George K. H. Lau & Associates, Inc. appraisers begin by researching public records on prior owners, obtain zoning records, and investigate demographic information. In addition, sales and rental comparisons and cost breakdowns are compiled into a detailed analysis that also includes standard information on the building’s unique characteristics; its proximity to local transportation and other significant points of interest. The general condition and safety of the structure, roof, and all interior and exterior features are also assembled into the final summary.
