When should you call in a real estate valuer?

The real estate expert: valuing a property at the right price

At the request of a potential buyer or the owner of a property, whether for rent or for sale, the real estate expert is tasked with assigning a price to a home, a business, industrial premises, land, a company… Thanks to his market analysis skills and his observational spirit, he undertakes to estimate the market or rental value of a property, taking into account all its characteristics: architecture, renovation work, biodiversity, income potential, environmental aspects…

Realistic and comprehensive, this valuation is essential in view of the complexity and specific features of certain properties. Whether you’re buying a primary residence, a second home, an inheritance or an investment, a qualified real estate agent is an essential partner, particularly when it comes to accurate and reliable property valuation, which is not only subject to the laws of the market.

The real estate valuer carries out genuine investigative work to define the value of the property to be appraised. A lawyer, a tax expert and a technician all rolled into one, they don’t just assert the property’s market value; they must demonstrate and justify it in a formal report. It is therefore more reliable than a simple estimate, more detailed than a notary’s opinion, and only this appraisal report is enforceable against third parties“, explains Eric Louvet, Director of the Dijon branch for the Group and a certified real estate appraiser.

The real estate expert: how does he work?

Real estate contracts, local regulations, inspections and administrative formalities can often seem like a complex labyrinth to neophytes. Thanks to their in-depth expertise, our expert real estateexpertise-immo agents are trained to navigate these complexities with ease. Their technical and legal knowledge ensures that every transaction complies with current legal standards, offering peace of mind to the parties involved.

After visiting the property to be appraised in detail, the appraiser collects and verifies the required information documents and technical diagnoses (ground occupation, DPE, cadastral plan, easements, etc.).

He then determines a price, taking into account various criteria such as the nature of the property (home, business, farmland…), economic factors (market price…), technical aspects (architecture, surface area, work…), tax, legal and accounting aspects. The expert’s job is to estimate the real value of the property, not to assess it according to his client’s requirements. For this reason, independence is of paramount importance in carrying out his mission.

Finally, he draws up an impartial appraisal report, in accordance with CEEI (Charte de l’expertise en évaluation immobilière) standards, including all his analyses and conclusions, dated and signed.
