Principle of conformity example

The value of a townhome in a complex of 100 almost identical townhomes would benefit from the principle of:

  1.  highest and best use
  2.  change
  3.  substitution
  4.  conformity

The answer is D. The principle of conformity states that the maximum value is found where there is a high degree of conformity, such as homes of similar design, architecture, and upkeep.
