Why Sell Now?
Realized purchase prices in the region have never been as high as they are today. The price increases of the last decade are enormous. However, some experts expect price reductions in the future: The reasons are on the one hand the economic consequences of the Corona crisis and on the other hand the demographic development and consequently reduced demand for housing. The real estate market is a cyclical market that has always been characterized by price fluctuations. The majority of today’s real estate buyers probably only know the upward trend – but that was not always the case (see the 1990s). Against this background, today is a good time to sell real estate or, if necessary, to restructure the portfolio in favor of direct company shares or stocks. Increase the chances of success of your real estate brokerage in Munich with a professional purchase consultation.
Why Seek Advice Now?
In very few transactions does real estate consulting take place at all. Many real estate owners do not seek professional advice because they trust their own research or have already purchased a property. A potentially expensive course of action, because: Real estate management is a separate, albeit young, field of study, and should be understood as a cross-sectional discipline of business administration, law, finance and taxation, among others. Since real estate usually involves substantial assets, open-ended real estate management advice is essential for avoiding costly mistakes and assessing risks. In addition, real estate in Germany is traditionally highly emotional (the home as a place of retreat). Against this background, a clear objective view of the matter is also helpful.
How Do I Sell A Property/Apartment/House?
In Germany, the sale of a property requires notarization. You can either look for a buyer yourself or have a broker do it for you. It is also advisable to consult a locally informed and experienced real estate agent in order to determine the best possible offer price for you.
How Do I Build Up Real Estate Wealth / How Do I Get Rich With Real Estate?
There are several ways to build wealth with real estate. On the one hand, there are professions to choose from that allow you to participate in the real estate market, such as project developer:in, real estate agent:in, notary:in or tax consultant:in. On the other hand, real estate can be acquired, traded and developed in order to generate profits through the increase in value and the ongoing cash flow from rental payments. But aimlessly buying luxury homes involves unnecessarily high costs and is therefore unprofitable. To make the real estate investment worthwhile, you need to know and acquire a lot of knowledge and experience in advance.
How To Calculate The Value Of A Property?
There are different methods to determine the market value of a property. In Germany, the valuation is often based on the Real Estate Valuation Ordinance (ImmoWertV), which stipulates the asset value, comparative value and capitalized earnings value methods as common procedures. Internationally, leased properties are often valued using the discounted cash flow method.
What Is The Market Value Of A Property?
According to §194 BauGB, the market value (by legal definition a synonym for the fair market value) is “determined by the price that could be obtained in the ordinary course of business […] without regard to unusual or personal circumstances at the time to which the determination relates.”
What Is The Difference Between Market Value And Price?
The purchase price of a property is the result of an individual purchase case and may or may not be the same as the market value.
What Is The Leverage Effect?
The leverage effect defines the relationship between equity, debt and total return. The additional use of debt capital only increases the return on equity if the interest rate on debt capital is lower than the total return.
How Can The Selling Price Of A Property Be Increased?
A longer marketing period (less pressure to sell), a comprehensible valuation and a professional preparation and management of the marketing increase the probability of achieving the maximum sales price of a property.
Why Are Broker Commissions So High When Buying And Selling Real Estate?
Economically, the real estate market is considered to be relatively intransparent. Real estate agents create more transparency through their work, which can be associated with high transaction costs.
