These rates were used to derive the property's current market value of $1,102,299.00. The market value calculation used a nine (9) percent capitalization rate applied to the building's annual net operating income. The Redevelopment Authority/Board of Supervisors reserves a two-year window, beginning in twelve (12) months, to exercise the option to purchase the property for its current market value of $1,102,299.00.
