Method of appraising real estate based on the market comparison of neighboring properties having similar characteristics. Seeks to answer the question: What would it cost to substitute a similar property for the current one? The market comparison approach assumes that a buyer would not be willing to pay more for a property than recently paid for a comparable property. There still are substantial differences between two properties. This requires an individual to make a judgmental appraisal.
