Market Value: The first step in any marketing campaign is estimating the value of the property. Selling too low leaves hard earned cash on the table, but asking too much generates low interest and no leads. Knowing a realistic market value and understanding the characteristics of your regional market can make the difference between finding a buyer or not.Estimating the value of large or unique rural property can be a daunting task. Unlike valuating residential homes where sales of similar properties in similar neighborhoods are generally plentiful, many of the larger and exclusive rural properties in BC are unique in their value characteristics and have very limited direct comparable sales available.

Estimating market value for these specialized rural properties takes in-depth research and specialized expertise. Rudy Nielsen has been valuing rural land for over 40 years. He was a licensed realtor from 1964-1984, and has been a professional appraiser since 1972. During his career he has appraised ranches, farms, islands, and both commercial and industrial properties, and in 1990, he valuated the 500,000 acre Douglas Lake Ranch for a client. Through NIHO he has personally bought and sold over 1,000 of his own rural properties in BC (many being unique trophy properties) and he is generally known as one of the top experts in BC for rural and recreational property.
