A SATISFIED CLIENT!
Working with Cheryl to sell our church property was a joy. Cheryl stayed on top of situations, went to bat for us when needed and kept us informed as well as advised us as to the best suggested moves throughout the process. Cheryl Gossa is a true professional and that allowed me to do what I do, while she took care of her end. For these reasons and many more, I would recommend Cheryl Gosa to any church who is considering getting into the real estate market whether to buy or sell. She helped us and I know she will do a great job for you too.

Thank You for our meeting this morning. We were truly Blessed today during the church property visit. I must say, you sisters make a great team. May your partnership and business ventures Be Blessed. Thank You for thinking of Kingdom Fellowship first with this wonderful opportunity to lease a beautiful church.

The most common measure of a church property is price per square foot (SF.) This small church of 3000SF sold for $58/SF. It was a very good price for a church in a rural community on 3.5 acres.
The amount of acreage and zoning both affect the price of a church. If there is additional land the property is generally more valuable. Many churches are zoned Residential simply because when they were built, they were in residential neighborhoods. If a buyer wants to convert the property to a commercial use, it could take many months to close the transaction. Sometimes a church is already zoned Commercial which makes it easier for a developer to stop the church use and make the site retail or office more quickly.
One of the measures of a church property is how many seats there are in the sanctuary. Some appraisers assign a value per seat to assess a property's value. For buyers , the capacity of the sanctuary is very important for present purchases as well as for future growth. The sanctuary pictured here holds 250-300 people.
