- Fair Market Value - is the highest fair price which the property will sell for in the open market with a willing purchaser
- Replacement Value - the insured scheduled value a client will have to pay to replace property regardless of the purchase price of the original property
- Liquidation or Distress Value - value placed on the property when the seller must obtain payment "on the spot". Usually handled by selling to a dealer; the price is that amount which would best reflect a wholesale transaction.
