What is a valuation exactly?
A valuation is an accurately estimation of the value of your property. We look at comparable objects in the neighborhood and take various factors into account, in and around the property. The experience of the valuator plays an important part. The valuator needs to be independent, acknowledged and capable to accurately determine the value of the property. Financial institutions base the client’s mortgage possibilities on the given valuation report. Furthermore, the value of the property influences things such as the amount of the premium for certain insurances.
What do you need a valuation report for?
There are various reasons for which you would need a valuation report. For example for the following situations:
PURCHASE OF A NEW PROPERTY
In order to be able to get a mortgage for the purchase of a property, you will need a validated valuation report
REFINANCING YOUR CURRENT MORTGAGE
In some cases, a valuation report is mandatory when you want to refinance your mortgage. This because the current property value influences the maximum amount you can refinance and the interest you pay.
LEGACY, INHERITANCE AND SUCCESSON
In the event of a death, it is possible that the property belongs to the inheritance. In order to correctly divide the (non-) material goods, you must know the current value of the property.
DIVORCE AND DIVISION OF PROPERTY
Comparable to the situation of a heritance, in case of a divorce it is necessary to know the accurate value of the property for the division of property.
The value of your property is important knowledge for the Tax office. Think of the transfer tax, which is based on the market value. Or in the case of a surplus value when selling your house.
SEM Makelaars – certified valuators
For the valuation of properties, we are affiliated with two valuation institutions: The Dutch Register for Real Estate Valuators (NRVT – Nederlands Register Vastgoed Taxateurs) and the Dutch Property Value Institute (NWWI – Nederlands Woning Waarde Instituut).
