Whether providing confidential preliminary consulting, written or oral valuation reports, or expert testimony in open court, we generate clearly reasoned and thoroughly supported opinions and conclusions.
“Highest and Best Use” (HaBU) is an appraisal analysis that establishes the most valuable use of a property based on its legally permissible, physically possible, financially feasible, and maximally productive use. An accurate HaBU analysis is the heart of any valuation but is even more relevant when it comes to mineral properties. There’s no better example than San Diego Gas & Electric v. Schmidt; in this case, SPA’s analysis of Highest and Best Use set the standard for greenfield valuation in California State courts and was the difference between a $700,000 offer from the utility company and the $8,000,000 just compensation for SPA’s client.
