The Remodel Guidance Property Potential Analysis (PPA) is a unique service tailored to the real estate market. The PPA is a report specifically focused on property potential, prepared through a combination of background research, consultation with planning and building departments, and a site visit and inspection.

At it's essence, a Property Potential Analysis is an additional report on a property, a bit like a Real Estate Inspection. Unlike a Real Estate inspection, however, which is often used to pinpoint and/or highlight problems and flaws in a property, a PPA is positively focused on the potential of a property for possible renovation and/or expansion. In addition to a clear summary of the zoning regulations specific to the property and quantified expansion possibilities, a PPA offers our professional insight into how the property might best be enhanced and what sorts of projects might be more easily approved, along with strategy to do so.

The Property Potential Analysis is available to both property buyers, to aid in pre-purchase evaluation, and to sellers, to highlight the potential of their properties. The report is thorough, yet concise and easy to read - a perfect "takeaway" for open house browsers. For buyers, sellers and agents who are unsatisfied with vague statements on listings such as "Potential for expansion - check with City," or "May be able to expand with permission from Planning," the PPA is a perfect solution. To assist sellers, and sellers' agents, the seller's report can be paid for in escrow, rather than at delivery.
