With decades of experience and a hands-on approach to property valuation, Leisure Appraisal has earned a reputation for vast market knowledge and in-depth analysis. We offer a broader, more diverse perspective of recreational real estate from the viewpoint of market participants.


We have also served as marketing consultants to brokers not as intimately familiar with special purpose properties. For instance, with our assistance in marketing McGolf, a noteworthy driving range in Dedham, MA, the property sold for nearly $10 million.


Leisure Appraisal also advises participants and helps facilitate market transactions. Most owners of operating businesses are understandably sensitive to market and competitive exposure that could adversely impact gross sales, staff morale, and net profits. With our confidential guidance, property sellers and buyers can more confidently obtain better understanding of local markets and their potential opportunities.
