Real estate appraisal services have a buyer power score of 2.8 out of 5. This score indicates that buyers have a moderate amount of negotiating power due to the low market share concentration, low price volatility and vendors' financial stability. There are just under 60,000 suppliers of these services in the United States, which has led to a high level of competition in the market. These suppliers include Jones Lang LaSalle Inc., Keller Williams Realty, BGC Partners, Inc. and FirstService Corporation. The strong level of competition encourages suppliers to negotiate prices to gain market share and, in so doing, boosts buyer power. The high financial stability of the average supplier of appraisal services also increases buyer power. Because suppliers are financially stable, buyers do not have to worry if a supplier will go bankrupt during the course of a contract. “Overall stability also means that buyers have a wide range of suppliers from which to choose,” according to IBISWorld business research analyst Scott Winters. Low price volatility further contributes to the moderate level of buyer power. Buyers are not at risk of huge spikes in service prices, and knowing that prices will not jump significantly during the length of the contract, suppliers are more willing to negotiate a lower price for multiyear contracts.

However, buyer power is hampered due to growth in the price of appraisal services during the past three years; this growth is anticipated to continue during the three years to 2017. Demand for real estate appraisal services has been growing during the three years to 2014 due to the rising number of businesses and increase in private nonresidential construction. “A rising number of businesses increases demand for commercial real estate, which, in turn, boosts demand for appraisal services needed by businesses,” Winters says. The increase in private nonresidential construction, meanwhile, has allowed businesses to expand their operations, further increasing demand for commercial real estate and, thus, appraisal services. The increase in demand has allowed suppliers to raise their prices during the past three years. Demand is expected to continue growing during the next three years as these trends continue, resulting in further price increases.
