Real Estate Appraisal & Analysis

With a solid foundation in land economics, real estate appraisal, urban planning and finance, Urban Land Economics Group bases its real estate analysis services upon a multidisciplinary approach.

Our team of expert appraisers, analysts and urban planners have years of experience in evaluating and analyzing commercial, industrial, and residential real estate.  What this means for our clients is that we are capable of serving you in ways that exceed your expectations.

As independent appraisers who know what to look for, we add value to any project you pursue. We are familiar with the entire range of evaluation issues in the southern California market, including environmental concerns and other matters that may affect a property's value.  We use information about comparable properties in a very thorough manner to make certain your property is valued appropriately.

Unlike other appraisers who may be new to the business, we do more than merely push paper. We become not only a trusted source for accurate and unbiased information, but valued advisors.


We verify the descriptions of real estate that exist in public records, and we also inspect properties thoroughly, not in a cursory way, and note any potential problems.  This protects your rights and limits your financial exposure.

ULEG's greatest strengths lie in the highly qualified team of professionals we’ve assembled to deliver varied and specialized skillsets that can:

  1. Effectively solve complex problems from a broad urban land economics perspective in a timely and cost-effective manner.  Our thinking is not necessarily bound by the mindset of most appraisers whose primary clients are banks and mortgage brokers;
  2. Answer the needs of private and public sector clients with a deep understanding of the entire range of real estate issues that affect estate planning and taxation, urban planning, and development; and,
  3. Exercise the ability and strength to successfully defend their opinions in political, legal, and other forums.
