Hervz Wouldn't D be a viable option to estimate the value of replacing the property as well?
CFALucille yes but appraisers generally don't consult with insurance companies when doing the cost approach, probably because it would cost them something
rjh512 D is missing that the replacement cost must be adjusted for depreciation.
