Appraisal Guidance

Valuation Advisories

Valuation Advisories are documents that offer voluntary guidance on recognized valuation methods and techniques. The Appraisal Practices Board (APB), an independent Board of The Appraisal Foundation that existed between 2010-2017, was instrumental in issuing a number of Valuation Advisories during those years.
