Market value and mortgage lending value
A real estate appraisal is always necessary when a property changes hands. This is the case when buying or selling, but also when dividing assets, foreclosures, divorce proceedings, or if the property is part of an inheritance estate. A distinction must be made here between the market value and the mortgage lending value. The market value is determined as of a specific date and serves to establish a value that can currently be achieved on the market in the form of a purchase price. This means that the market value and sales value are usually identical. The mortgage lending value takes into account fluctuations in the value of the loan collateral over the entire term of a loan for a property. This is usually lower than the market value.
Methods of determining property value
There are various recognised methods for determining the value of a condominium or calculating the value of a house. The valuation in kind method is based on the market value of a property, taking into account the production costs. The appraisal is carried out for developed properties which are marked by personal use, e.g. purchase or new construction. The calculation is based on the land value, the value of the other assets, and the value of the buildings. If the focus is not on personal use but on the yield of the investment, valuers and experts use the capitalised earnings method. This is often the case with apartment buildings, for example. In addition to the land value and the value of the buildings, the sustainable annual net rent plays an important role in the calculation. In the comparative value procedure, prices for similar properties are compared, for example with regard to the plot of land, the area or the residential location. This appraisal method is mainly used for detached or semi-detached houses, terraced houses of identical construction, or apartments.
