On March 1, 2014, Jessi Corp. acquired a 10-unit residential complex for $1,275,000, paid in cash. An independent appraiser determined that 7 5% of the total purchase price should be allocated to buildings, with the remainder allocated to land. On the date of acquisition, estimated useful life of the building was 25 years, with estimated residual value of $325,000. Jessi estimates that straight-line depreciation would best reflect the pattern of benefits to be received from the building. Fair value of the complex, as assessed by an independent appraiser on each date, is as follows:
Date Fair Value
December 31, 2014 ............. $1,322,000
December 31, 2015 ............. $1,255,000
December 31, 2016 ............. $1,223,000
The complex qualifies as an investment property under IAS 40 l11vestmtmt Property. Jessi has a December 31 year end.
