Appraisers generally agree that the comparable land sale and the subject property must have the same highest and best use. While there may be extreme cases where it is not possible to find properties which have the same highest and best use as the subject property, it would be extremely difficult to adjust for differences in economic benefit between parcels which have a different highest and best use. Performing a credible and reliable valuation of land using the sales comparison approach requires comparable sales with the same highest and best use as the subject property.

Comparable land sales with a date of sale near the effective date of valuation are highly desirable. However, in most cases the appraiser is required to evaluate the benefit of using sales which are more similar with regard to location and size versus sales which are chronologically more similar to the effective date of valuation. There is no clear-cut answer to determining which sales are most effective for valuing the subject property. In some cases, it is possible to extract an adjustment for market conditions (based upon a matched pair sales analysis) and utilize sales which occurred substantially before or after the effective date of valuation.
