danlan How about A?
dimos Well danlan, I also pick A but now I assume that is difficult to estimate here the market capitalization rate. Still I am not sure...
samco It's C because the geographic location is unique so you the market capitalization is hard to define in relative terms. So use the cost approach.
labsbamb why not B? Compare sell of same property in same area to figure out the value of the house.
Shelton B is the first one needs to be eliminated since the house has the UNIQUE geographic features.
gazza77 it cant be the cost approach as the geographical features are unique. Therefore since there is no more land with these features the cost is infinite.
sonerdem83 if you want to change or replace the building you will confront with UNIQUE geograpic conditions which means extra construction costs.
as far as remember definition of cost approach is also something like this.
shumwaya - Income Approach is only for commercial or income producing properties. this one is residential therefore not a performing asset

- Comp Approach is used to compare the asset to comparable properties, since this is unique it will not have any "like kind comparisons" therefore the comp approach is useless

- Cost Approach, like mentioned the cost approach is the total cost of complete replacement of the asset. Best here because it is a unique residential.

Unique commercial = income approach
