When and for what do you need a real estate appraisal?
Buying and selling a property requires a lot of money. As a seller, you want to sell your property at the best possible price. But how much is the house worth, at what price can the apartment be sold and what are the current real estate prices? Real estate appraisal is a matter of experts. If you make your own valuation, there is a risk of overestimating the market value. Too high a price can scare away potential buyers and the property becomes a trader. If the selling price was too low, as the seller you would give money. Professional real estate appraisal offers you many advantages:
- Every property is different and the respective market price depends on many different factors. Only those who know the local real estate market can correctly assess the value of the property.
- In rural areas in particular, there are often only a few transactions that can be used to determine the value of a property. In addition to knowledge of the market, experience and expertise in the different valuation methods are required.
- Landlords often overestimate the market value of their property because they are emotionally tied to their property. Self-assessment therefore rarely leads to an objective result.
- The real estate market is constantly changing and real estate prices in Switzerland are changing. Increases or losses in value can only be determined by an estimate.
Without a professional appraisal by an expert, it is not possible for property owners to assess the value realistically. The experienced appraiser determines the current market value, which you can use to guide your project.
