Don't Lose Money, Unlock Highest and Best Use with AQWA

Michael Clayton

When appraising a property, the question of "What is the highest and best use of a property?"  is asked by appraisers or potential buyers in order to arrive at an accurate estimation of market value if the property were to be sold.

This process of determining highest and best use is both an analytical and a creative process requiring the appraiser to not only see the property for what it is, but what it can become while also being:

  • Legally permissible
  • Physically possible
  • Financially feasible
  • Maximally productive

To effectively answer these questions, one has to be well-versed in local law, zoning, permitting, limiting site conditions, property values, market trends and consumer or investor demand.

For properties without access to public sewer, the onsite wastewater or septic design will oftentimes be the single most limiting factors for how a property can be used.

We help you overcome these constraints by thoroughly understanding how onsite wastewater collections, treatment and dispersal can reduce the legal, physical, and financial barriers that stand in the way of maximally productive property. 

Very few people see the most creative and efficient way to treat and disperse wastewater long-term at first glance.  Having been in the business for 15+ years, we have seen dozens of techniques that change the value of a property or development by 6 or even 7 figures with one critical decision concerning wastewater. 

AQWA also operates and maintains over 500 wastewater treatment systems in the Carolinas which gives us a unique perspective of how initial design considerations impact ongoing operation and maintenance cost.

When buying a property, selling a property, or developing a property, knowing what your options for development are is key to meeting your goals AND  not leaving huge amounts of money on the table.  Read more about how we do that for commercial systems, residential systems, and STEP Collections that bring sewer to you.
