A restaurant is more complex than an office, which is more complex than a distribution center. This determines the rate at which we can gather data. 2) How Many Square Feet Is The Subject Property? This determines the time involved and the fee. 3) What Is The Tax Basis = Purchase Price Less Land? This determines the amount of the tax benefits.
