A single-occupancy retail and shopping structure contains ONLY one structure which can be occupied by the owner or leased. This type of space can be used for any type of retail business, office or commercial venture and typically includes valuation on both land and improvements.
For appraisal purposes, a county appraisal district (CAD) typically subdivides Single-Occupancy Retail and Shopping structures into the categories shown above based on their highest and best use. A CAD will derive two different values when appraising a property: Market Value and Equity Value.
Whether the property is occupied by the owner or not, the market valuation approach used by the CAD can be Cost Approach or Sales Approach.
The Equity Value, also known as Uniform and Equal, is based on the CAD’s valuation of Comparable Properties and can also be used to fight for a lower value.
