Cost Approach: Is essentially based on the substitution economic principle. According to the principle, the cost incurred by an investor in the acquisition of an asset should be equivalent to the cost of obtaining (through construction or purchase) of a substitute asset that has the same utility. The approach can be applied using the historical cost, replication cost, or replacement cost methods.
