As unbiased and independent advisors, we represent leading public and private real estate entities and stakeholders, including law firms, REITs, financial institutions, investment banks, opportunity funds, insurance companies, hedge funds, pension advisors and owners/developers.
Whether analyzing financial data, unraveling difficult economic issues or navigating a complex litigation terrain, the Property Science’s team of real estate professionals provides expert support to resolve legal disputes.

Litigation Support Services include:
Property Sciences has extensive experience in providing commercial, industrial and residential appraisal review services. These services are required to provide an expert opinion on compliance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), on the appropriateness of the appraisal and the credibility of the opinion of value.
The complex nature of real estate investments and the large flows of capital associated with real estate lending and development make it inevitable that disputes will arise. When these disputes cannot be resolved through alternative means, litigation may be the only way to bring the matter to closure. Property Sciences has extensive experience presenting and defending its expert conclusions and opinions in depositions and trial testimony.
Portfolio Analysis and Stress Testing
Property Sciences serves as an independent source to assist institutions in portfolio review. For a nominal per-transaction fee, we will review a portfolio of properties by geographic market and asset type for the purpose of pinpointing under-performing properties and risk associated with these assets. Using regional and national asset performance statistics, portfolio-level stress tests are used to quantify the impact of changing economic conditions on assets, earnings and capital of potential problem properties.
For more in-depth analysis on these properties, we offer low-cost reports under our Asset Watch program. Report categorizations include: construction and land development, multifamily, farmland, commercial (office, industrial, hotel, etc.), gas stations, car washes, self-storage and residential care facilities.
Property Sciences offers on-going training programs to your staff in order for them to better understand and manage appraisal risk. Our straightforward seminars can be tailored to incorporate your specific company needs. Programs include single-family, 2-4 units, and reviewing procedures that educate underwriters, processors, and account representatives.
