About Us

AER Group was founded by president and senior appraiser Frank Odar, Jr in 1991. Since its inception, Frank’s hands-on,
people oriented approach to business has kept him at the head of the appraisal industry throughout Northwest Indiana. For over 30 years, his dedication to quality, professionalism, and customer service positions AER Group as a leader in appraisal services. Our team is dedicated to
integrating the most current industry technology available. Our reports are generated using advanced tools and industry leading software. We take advantage of the most up-to-date reporting practices available. Comparables are generated through refined search practices and offer the highest valuation accuracy possible.

Under United States tax laws and accounting rules, cost segregation is the process of identifying personal property assets that are grouped with real property assets, and further separating out personal assets for tax reporting purposes. A cost segregation study identifies and reclassifies personal property assets to shorten the depreciation time for taxation purposes, which reduces current income tax obligations. Personal property assets include a building’s non-structural elements, exterior land improvements and a portion of indirect construction costs.
