Property Valuation and Advisory Services

Ensure objective third-party property valuation for your real estate investments

You need to know the worth of your property at various stages throughout its lifecycle to account for any increase or decrease in value. Your property value estimates need to be prepared with independence and impartiality to avoid conflicts of interest.

It is important to have a concise and objective overview of the worth and performance of your portfolio to help in making informed financial investments. This is where TÜV SÜD and our property valuation services can help.

Why is getting a property value estimate important for your company?

Social and economic changes in the wake of increasing globalisation are having a marked effect on property value and the associated financial risks. Properties gain or lose worth due to changes in socio-demographic structure. Any unknown increase or decrease in value can result in a loss of income for owners and investors. Conflicts of interest between financial and insurance companies may result in biased valuation appraisals.

It is essential to get your property valuation estimate from a company you can trust. TÜV SÜD offers objective third-party property valuation services for real estate purchase, sale, mortgaging, accounting, and taxation on an international level for all types of buildings, from commercial and residential to industrial plants. We also provide appraisal for your building’s internal equipment and production facilities based on our comprehensive multidisciplinary expertise and first-class technical know-how.
