Entering Pro Forma Data


Use this procedure to value a property based on the pro forma method.

The pro forma method values properties based on income information stored in PACS. It is a comparison method that derives median values from the income information. Expense and capitalization rates are determined by compiling the median values for the properties that you specify in the Pro Forma Search dialog box.

  2. In the Valuation Method section, click Income Value.
