- The cost approach to valuation makes a simple assumption,…that a potential user of a property…will not, and should not, pay more for a property…than it would cost to build an equivalent property;…that is, the value of the property is the cost of the land…plus the cost of construction minus the depreciation.…In the industry, this is often known…as the replacement method.…If we had a near identical plot of land…and built a new structure that has the exact same functions…using the current materials and utilizing current designs,…what would it cost today?…As you can see,…this is a great approach to use for new properties.…
Let's look at an example.…All right, let's look at a quick example…of what the cost approach looks like.…So here the cost approach.…We start with what it costs…if we were to build a new building,…a new dwelling of the same size.…So assuming market costs about $125 per square foot…to build a 1,600 square foot house.…Here, that would be the cost here.…
