All SLVS reports comply fully with the Uniform Standard of Professional Appraisal Practice of the Appraisal Foundation and with the provisions of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act. This includes the allocation of total going concern valuations to their real estate, personal property and business value components.

SLVS provides these services for senior housing properties located throughout the country. Through specific market experience, SLVS believes that an understanding of the specialized characteristics of senior housing properties generally outweighs the knowledge of local general real estate markets and trends, which though critical to an accurate valuation are relatively easier to assess and analyze in a short period of time. This is especially true for the more complex senior housing types including for profit and not-for-profit continuing care retirement communities, troubled properties and multiple facility engagements.
