IAS Services

Our mission is to provide a full range of real estate services to public and private organizations that need to acquire property for public works projects. We do so by retaining a staff of professionals that have expertise in every phase of the right of way process, from preliminary design to property acquisition to construction completion. By providing all necessary services and keeping our own overhead low, we are able to keep your project cost at a minimum.

Our consultants perform:

Property Acquisition

We currently employ over 25 qualified right of way negotiators with an average of 20 years experience acquiring property rights, through both settlement and Eminent Domain, for projects implemented under the provisions of the:
  • Uniform Relocation and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 (Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations Part 24)
  • Federal Highway Administration
  • Federal Transit Administration
  • Federal Aviation Administration
  • Federal Emergency Management Agency
  • U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
  • State Statutes and Operating Policies for Acquiring Agencies located in: Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia

Appraisal Services

Our staff of 7 generally certified appraisers are members of professional organizations, such as the Appraisal Institute and the American Society of Appraisers, and are currently licensed in Florida, Louisianna, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. This talented group is capable of:
  • Providing valuations and independent fee appraisal reports
  • Providing expert witness testimony
  • Administering the appraisal procurement process
  • Conducting feasibility studies (including: cost-estimating corridors and alternative routes)
  • Writing Appraisal Problem Analyzes
  • Reviewing appraisal reports to determine compliance with Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice, Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisition, and related State and Acquiring Agency regulations

Real Property Asset Mangagement

Through our appraisal and management team, IAS provides in depth market anaylsis and advisory services to agencies to maximize economic utilization of real property interests. As real property inventories increase, the coordination of leases, disposition of assets and overall inventory management becomes vital. Contact us to see how we can better prepare your agency for today and tomorrow's asset concerns.

Relocation Assistance

In addition to providing real property acquisition, our universal agents provide all necessary relocation activities to guarantee that parcels are vacated in accordance with your construction-letting schedule. By teaming with IAS, your agency can rest assured that all project displacees will each receive all required written notices of vacate dates and benefit entitlements as prescribed by the Uniform Relocation Act according to your agency's operating procedures. Some of the services we provide include:
  • Pre-acquisition surveys/interviews
  • Pre-acquisition plans and reports
  • Residential and nonresidential benefit entitlement calculations
  • Relocation advisory assistance

Property Management

We realize that construction activities are not always ready to commence while project property acquisitions are occurring. For those situations, we are prepared to manage improved parcels by offering these services:
  • Contracting for services (Environmental testing, Lawn maintenance, Boarding and Sealing, and Demoltion)
  • Coordinating interim leases with occupants
  • Assisting with the disposal of acquired personal property

Title and Closing Services

Our diverse group of real estate professionals includes individuals prepared to handle your title needs by providing these services:
  • Title abstracts and research
  • In-house closings
  • Title contracting
  • Procurement of title insurance policies
