Note: Nu­mer­ous fac­tors in­flu­ence the value of an in­di­vid­ual as­set, in­clud­ing the prop­erty’s age, con­di­tion, lo­ca­tion, ameni­ties and ser­vices, brand, man­age­ment ex­per­tise, and rep­u­ta­tion. These fac­tors must all be con­sid­ered in the con­text of the ho­tel’s spe­cific com­pet­i­tive mar­ket, in­clud­ing the na­ture, strength, and trends in demand gen­er­a­tors; the char­ac­ter and com­pet­i­tive pos­ture of the ex­ist­ing ho­tels; and the po­ten­tial ad­di­tion of any new prop­er­ties. The value of any in­di­vid­ual as­set can only be con­cluded af­ter a thor­ough in­ves­ti­ga­tion of all these fac­tors. And that con­clu­sion will in­vari­ably dif­fer—of­ten ma­te­ri­ally—from the in­dex in­di­cated by the HVI. Al­though the HVI can­not tell you what a par­tic­u­lar ho­tel is worth, it does pro­vide ex­cel­lent “big picture” data, in­di­cat­ing which mar­ket ar­eas are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing pos­i­tive trends for in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.
