Valuation is an art which has found various use in different sectors. But it is seldom restricted to the boundaries of engineers and architects when it comes to property valuation. In the present study, the market value of a residential building situated in Udupi, Karnataka State, India is predicted using Multiple Regression Analysis (MRA) based on the factors affecting the value of the property. This value is then compared with the values obtained by the conventional approaches of valuation like Land and Building method, Rental Income Approach, Composite Rate method and by detailed estimation approach. The property under valuation has a plinth area of 2545.42 square feet standing on a free hold land of 4207.896 square feet. The market value predicted by Multiple Regression Analysis (MRA) shows a variation of 14.10% in comparison with Land and Building method, a variation of - 22.17% in comparison with Rental Income approach, a variation of 4.90% in comparison with Composite Rate method and a variation of 8.81% in comparison with detailed estimate method. The advantage of using MRA is that it uses statistical modelling and reduces the chance of human bias and error.
