The comparable transaction method can use a variety of different comparable evidence, also known as units of comparison, which form the basis of the comparison. For example, a few of the many common units of comparison used for real property interests include price per square metre, rent per square metre and capitalisation rates.
The key steps in the comparable transactions method are…
(a) identify the units of comparison that are used by participants in the relevant market, (b) identify the relevant comparable transactions and calculate the key valuation metrics for those transactions,
(c) perform a consistent comparative analysis of qualitative and quantitative similarities and differences between the comparable assets and the subject asset,
(d) make necessary adjustments, if any, to the valuation metrics to reflect differences between the subject asset and the comparable assets
(e) apply the adjusted valuation metrics to the subject asset, and
(f) if multiple valuation metrics were used, reconcile the indications of value.
An example of valuation metrics are:
