Our Services


Holding the AACI ( P.App ) and CRA designations of the Appraisal Institute of Canada and real estate and appraisal designation from similar organizations including the RI(BC), we offer a full range of appraisal services which include:


  • Primary, Secondary and Mortgage Refinancing.


    Every year, countless people buy, sell or refinance their own slice of the Canadian Dream. Most, if not all, of these transactions include not only the Realtor, the mortgage company or lender, or lawyers or conveyancers, but also a real estate appraiser to ensure that all aspects of the transaction are completed and that a clear title passes from the seller to the buyer.


    A real estate appraisal for the purpose of mortgage financing is generally required by the lender in order to establish that the value of the property will be sufficient collateral for the amount of the loan.


    It has become an understood and accepted part of a real estate transaction.


  • Employee Relocations.


    When a corporate employee or third party relocation company is required to hire a relocation appraiser, its critical for the success of the employee transfer process that a relocation appraiser with credentials and experience in relocation appraising be selected. Here at Gateway Appraisal & Consulting Group Inc, we will always strive to provide the best possible service, market knowledge and report quality in relation to our peers. As a result of our firsthand experience in the industry, we understand better than most, the corporate clients needs for timely and reliable service and their concerns for their employee and his/her family whom they clearly value as a strength within their organization.


    The Employee Relocation Appraisal Report is a report that requires substantial narrative components and addenda to adequately address the clients' concerns and needs. The form and guidelines for the relocation appraisal differ substantially from the traditional mortgage appraisal.


    By selecting our firm for your relocation appraisal, you are assuring a more trouble free move to your new job location with the confidence that an experienced local appraiser whose practice and training is focused on relocation appraisals was chosen.


  • Division of Asset.


    An appraisal is almost always a requirement that involves division of assets. The appraisal is used to determine an equitable division of the shared ownership of real estate. Probably, the most common instance of shared ownership is where a married couple owns the family home. That equal, undivided interest is referred to as a joint tenancy. Upon death, the interest of the deceased automatically goes to the survivor or survivors. Where two or more persons who are not married and own interest in a single property or an investment portfolio, such owners are tenants in common. Each tenant in common owner may sell or bequeath his or her interest and, upon death, that interest becomes part of his or her personal estate.


    Gateway Appraisal & Consulting Group Inc will provide valuations of real estate providing the owners of these interests with valuable and independent analysis, particularly in the case of a sale of such an interest. At times, these appraisal reports will be required for Court purposes.


  • Capital Gains ( Valuation Day ).


    In 1972, the Canadian government introduced a tax on capital gains. Individuals that owned a property as of December 31, 1971 or later require an appraisal of the value of the property as of that date. Capital gains is only calculated on the capital appreciation of the property since Valuation Day. Gateway Appraisal & Consulting Group Inc has a database that allows us to provide a Valuation Day opinion of value.


  • Assessment Appeals.


    The Province of British Columbia regularly assesses and updates assessments on real estate of all types. If you are not satisfied with your property assessment, one of our appraisers can be retained to perform an evaluation of your assessment and if necessary represent you in an assessment appeal.


  • Consulting.


    A wide range of consulting services can also be provided to clients proposing to develop investment properties, for going concern valuations, highest and best use studies, feasibility studies, building expansion, lease analysis, asset management etc.


Our reports to our clients are kept strictly confidential and may be delivered via facsimile, e-mail or conventional printed hard copy.
