- Drawing comparables from different regions of the country
- Adjusting seller-financed transactions to their all-cash to the seller equivalent value
- Adjusting prior year transactions to their most current year equivalent value
- Determining an adequate sample size of comparables
- The correct way to calculate the average value of the comparables' Selling price/seller's discretionary earnings (SP/SDE) multiplier
- The six different SP/SDE multipliers that can be developed from the same comparable sample data
