Broker Opinion of Value BOV (non-certified valuation)

A Broker Opinion of value, BOV, is a very good estimation of business value, similar to how a Realtor provides a comparative market analysis to a homeowner.  It is for the purpose of marketing the business and brokering a transaction to get it sold. 

In addition, owners want an annual estimate of value to show trend lines to buyers.
