Kent-Macpherson has a long standing client relationship with many First Nations communities and governments throughout the province and across the country. Understanding and respecting the aboriginal perspective, history and diverse culture is vital. Our focus during the appraisal process on First Nations land is to facilitate development and maximize value as well as to ensure consideration of the different types of leases and their impact on market value.
While all real estate has value, the greatest value to the widest range of prospective purchasers of First Nations land is generated by creation of a leasehold interest. The broader the permitted uses and longer the lease term, the higher the value.
