Our services

We draft a comprehensive, accurate and documented appraisal report and apply a special technique to define the market value of your property, based on different methods.
We apply at least three different methods - depending on our mission:

  • The comparative method
  • The hedonistic method (added value and depreciated value)
  • The land + (construction – antiquated elements) method
  • The profitability method (value of return by capitalization)
  • Or any other specific method we can develop for your needs

Our reports are enforceable.

We respect the ethical principles of independence, confidentiality and impartiality and the professional rules of the Real Estate Appraisal Charter.
Our property appraisal reports comply with the European Real Estate Valuation Standards published by TEGoVA.
