BUSINESS APPRAISALS Fees for business appraisals are dependent on the required hours to produce the actual and appropriate type of business appraisal report. The greater potential for scrutiny of a business appraisal results in higher fees as a result of the additional work required for extensive and detailed reports. The quality, analysis and final appraised value are the same for a Level II and Level III business appraisal. The difference is that some appraisals need to be "self-contained", or in other words a Level III business appraisal needs to stand on its own and include all pertinent analysis and factors for a given business appraisal.
To clarify, a Level II appraisal would be a shorter version of a Level III report at approximately 25-40 pages in length and appropriate for matters as an S Corporation Conversion, some marital dissolution matters, estate taxation for smaller businesses or a business loan application. Conversely, a Level III business appraisal would be very detailed and generally be upwards of 50 pages. This Level III type of appraisal would be appropriate for matters as estate and gift taxation, condemnation, and partnership disputes with litigation potential.
Level I business appraisals are generally from 10-25 pages and are limited in scope and analysis. These Level I appraisals can be appropriate for financial planning purposes or for setting a listing price of a business that is to be sold. Below are guideline fees of the three levels of business appraisals that are offered by the H H Appraisal and Brokerage Company. Additionally, examples are given for the appropriateness of each type of appraisal.

When one sells a business the business owner normally pays a fee to the listing broker (Seller's representative) and a fee to the buyer's broker (buyer's representative). If the listing broker finds a seller without the services of another broker, the listing broker becomes both the listing broker and buyer's broker. Fees vary depending on the listing and purchase price of a given business, but typically fees calculate to a total of 8-10%, which includes the fees for both the listing broker and buyer's broker fees.

REAL ESTATE BROKERAGE
Similar to business brokerage services, when one sells a real estate interest the owner normally pays a fee to the listing broker (Seller's representative) and a fee to the buyer's broker (buyer's representative). If the listing broker finds a seller without the services of another broker, the listing broker becomes both the listing broker and buyer's broker. Fees vary depending on the type of realty involved. The selling of a home will typically incur a total fee of 5-6%, which includes both the listing broker's fees and the buyer broker's fees. Vacant land can have total fees at approximately 10%.
