An accurate property valuation is the key to sales success

Before making any major purchase, you will probably inform yourself in detail about the prices being asked on the market. Potential buyers, who are often about to make the biggest investment of their lives, spend a lot of time and effort researching the market prices for their desired property. It is therefore crucial for the success of your sales process that you have the value of your property precisely determined.

Only with a fair, seriously calculated sales price will you directly appeal to the clientele willing to buy your property. As an experienced real estate agent in Aachen, we have the necessary professional expertise to place your property valuation on a solid foundation.

Our well-founded property valuation: verifiable and proven

Standardised, free property valuation portals can be found in rows on the internet. But how is the valuation carried out? And why do the results differ, sometimes considerably, from provider to provider? Even we don't know exactly which algorithms are at work in the background - but we can clearly answer your five most important questions about our property valuation:

How do you value my property?

We work with the comparative value method that has been found to be very good in our many years as estate agents in Aachen. This means: We compare your property with a sufficiently large number of houses or flats that have been sold recently. In doing so, we are guided by the anonymised, certified sales contracts archived by the appraisal committees in Aachen. However, since real estate is never absolutely the same, we use discounts or surcharges that cover the following points, among others:

  • Location of the property plus transport connections,
  • age of the building, condition of the building,
  • construction and floor plan,
  • energetic condition of the property, etc.

Why is a sound property valuation so important?

The aim and purpose of a property valuation is to determine the current market value of a property. This is the monetary value for which your property currently stands on the Aachen market - taking supply and demand into account.

At the same time, this market value forms the essential basis for determining the asking price with which you start the sales process.

From our many years of experience in the Aachen area, we know that it is advisable to estimate the selling price around five to eight percent higher - in order to have some room for negotiation.

What happens if the sales price is set too high?

Nothing at all, or worse: a lot. If you set the selling price too high, you will scare off potentially interesting buyers for your house. Conversely, high sales prices magically attract another group: Viewing tourists who have no serious intention of actually buying your house. As the time your offer remains on the market progresses, it takes on the appearance of a shopkeeper.

What are the consequences of setting the selling price too low?

In the best case, you will only lose money without need. More often, however, prospective real estate buyers become suspicious - a circumstance that can damage the entire sales process. Potential, well-informed buyers assume that something is wrong with your property if the sales price is too low.
