(4) base projections of future rent or income potential and expenses on reasonably clear and appropriate evidence.

(b) In developing income and expense statements and cash-flow projections, the chief appraiser shall consider:

(1) historical information and trends;

(2) current supply and demand factors affecting those trends; and
