    Explanation
    The correct answer is "appraisal". An appraisal refers to the process of assessing the value or worth of something, typically in the context of real estate or property. It involves evaluating various factors such as condition, location, and market trends to determine an accurate estimate of the property's value. In this context, "appraisal" is the most appropriate term as it aligns with the meaning of "avalúo", which is a Spanish word commonly used in the same sense.
