An estimate of value is useful for negotiations and strategic planning. It is similar to an opinion of value, except that it uses a range of value, instead of an exact value. For example, instead of expressing a value as $10 million, it might use a range of $9 – 11 million.

An estimate of value requires the same rigorous and independent preparation process as an opinion of value, and it conforms to the same standards.

Uses of Estimate of Value

  • Establish range of value for negotiations
  • Strategic planning for divestiture or expansion
