Appraisal of real estate

Oscar Wilde has said that people “know the price of everything and the value of nothing.” In real estate, price and value sometimes do not overlap. During the economic boom, for instance, the price of real estate was typically higher than the value. During the recession, the situation was reversed. Our task is to determine the market value of real estate at a specific time, i.e., the moment in which we live.

Appraising real estate is a process in the course of which property is assigned its current market value. The property that is being appraised may be an apartment, house, lot, business premises or other registered immovable. We also appraise legal shares of registered immovables. RE Kinnisvara AS has been providing appraising services since 1995, and our appraisals are accepted by all financial institutions operating in Estonia.

As a rule, the need for an expert opinion arises when an enterprise is raising additional financing and when seeking a loan against real estate as collateral. Also, expert opinions are often required for resolving court disputes, and in financial statements when adequately describing the economic situation of an enterprise. An expert assessment of residential properties takes 1-2 workdays following the inspection of the property.

Real estate appraisers at RE Kinnisvara AS are publicly certified and attested, operating on the basis of approved standards (EVS875) and the code of good practices of the Estonian Association of Appraisers. We are a reliable partner for auditing companies, banks, and companies that operate in a number of different sectors.
