Fair Market Value – Removed (FMV-Removed)

Net Orderly Liquidation Value (OLV-Net)

Net Forced Liquidation / Auction Value (FLV-Net)

The estimated and net proceeds expressed in terms of U.S. dollars which could typically be realized at a properly advertised and conducted public auction sale without reserve, held under forced sale conditions and under present day economic trends, within 90 days of the appraisal report.  Conclusions consider physical location, difficulty of removal, adaptability, specialization, marketability, physical condition, overall appearance and psychological appeal.
