Shaske & Zeiner Appraisal Consultants Ltd. was incorporated as of January 1, 1993. This corporation is the result of an employee buy-out of the firm Edward J. Shaske & Associates Ltd.
Edward J. Shaske & Associates Ltd. had been active in appraisals of various forms since 1969. They were, and the new company continues to be, involved in the appraisal of properties for the purposes of financing, litigation, and insurance. These include the appraisal of commercial, industrial, single family and higher-density residential, agricultural, vacant land, and special purpose properties. The scope of this appraisal activity has covered a large portion of Western Canada.
As well, our firm is active in property tax assessment work, for both the property owner and various municipalities in Alberta. Some of the more extensive properties on which we have carried out assessment services include West Edmonton Mall, Battle River Power Plant, Sheerness Power Plant, the Edmonton International Airport, and many other office, multi family, industrial, and shopping centre facilities.
In valuating various types of real estate, we employ the Income Approach to Value, the Direct Comparison Approach, and the Cost Approach to Value, where necessary. In the utilization of the Income Analysis, we employ the Direct Capitalization Procedure and, in some cases, the Discounted Cash Flow Analysis.
Having valued a range of properties for various corporations for market value and assessment purposes, we believe our firm has a good grasp of general trends and economic factors which can create or destroy property values.
