## After Repair Value Formula

The following formula is used to calculate an after repair value:

ARV = ACSF * TSF

- Where ARV is the after repair value ($)
- ACSF is the average cost or price per square foot that repaired homes have sold for in the area ($/ft^2)
- TSF is the total square feet (ft^2)

## After Repair Definition

**What is ARV? **

ARV, short for after repair value, is a term used in real estate to describe the value of a home after it has been repaired to modern standards.

This term is brought up mostly in the “flipping market” since the goal of that market is to repair and re-sell old homes.

## Example Problem

How to calculate ARV?

**First, determine the total square footage of livable space in the house.**For this example, the home that is being repaired has a total of 2,000 square feet.

**Next, determine the average price per square foot that similar homes have sold for in the area.**These should be the price per square foot of homes roughly the same size that has also been repaired. In this case, those homes have sold for $200 /ft^2.

**Finally, calculate the after repair value using the formula.**Using the formula above, the ARV is calculated to be:

ARV = ACSF * TSF

ARV = $200 * 2,000

ARV = $400,000
