Stevenson Advisors are thoroughly experienced in the valuation of agricultural and rural properties throughout the Province of Manitoba. This includes such agricultural properties as vacant agricultural crop land, grain farms, mixed farms, ranches, dairy farms, intensive livestock operations, feed lots, as well as a variety of agri-businesses such as farm machinery dealerships, abattoirs, agrichemical outlets and fertilizer outlets, as well as other special purpose agri-business operations.
Our appraisers can quickly and efficiently survey the marketplace and determine the point in time market value for agricultural properties, as well as perform retrospective valuations needed for capital gains valuation or for corporate farm share valuation when required. Our assignments have been used for securing financing, estate and financial planning purposes, and allocation of value for estate asset disposal. Other specialized assignments include valuation for conservation easements and expropriation purposes.
A Highest and Best Use analysis is performed in every valuation assignment, which is especially valuable information for agricultural properties which may have development potential, and are located in urban fringe areas.
