Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
The following table presents quantitative information about the significant unobservable inputs used to estimate the fair value of financial instruments measured on a recurring basis as of September 30, 2018:
Third party service providers involved in fair value measurements are evaluated for competency and qualifications. Fair value measurements, including unobservable inputs, are evaluated based on current transactions and experience in the real estate and capital markets.
The impact of changes in unobservable inputs used to determine the fair market value of the credit valuation adjustment, TROR and fair value adjustment to the borrowings subject to TROR are not deemed to be significant.
Fair Value of Other Financial Instruments
The carrying amount of accounts receivable and accounts payable, accrued expenses and other liabilities approximates fair value based upon the short-term nature of the instruments. The carrying amount of notes receivable approximates fair value since the interest rates on these notes approximates current market rates for similar instruments when considering the risk profile and quality of the collateral, if applicable. The Company estimates the fair value of its debt instruments by discounting future cash payments at interest rates the Company believes approximate the current market. Estimated fair value is based upon market prices of public debt, available industry financing data, current treasury rates, recent financing transactions, conversion features on convertible senior debt and loan to value ratios. The fair value of the Company’s debt instruments is classified as Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy.
The following table summarizes the fair value of nonrecourse mortgage debt and notes payable, net (exclusive of the fair value of derivatives), term loan, net and convertible senior debt, net:
