Building Grade Adjustment

The grade is a factor that is intended to reflect an overall judgment of the quality of workmanship and materials evident in a dwelling. Grade factors are established for all residential properties and are applied as a multiplier to the base cost of the dwelling. The grading process is based on appraisal experience and judgment.

The scale of factors runs from E- (lowest), E, E+, D-, D, D+, C-, C, C+, B-, B, B+, A-, A, A+, X-, X, X+ (highest).

A dwelling with a "C" grade represents a dwelling of average quality of workmanship, architectural design and materials. It is the benchmark from which the grade is adjusted upward or downward.
