Expert opinion on the market value (market value) of developed and undeveloped land

If you need the market value of your property, you can apply for a market value appraisal from the responsible expert committee for property values.

If you want to sell a developed or undeveloped plot, it may make sense to have the market value (market value) of the property determined to determine the purchase price. Likewise, in the case of inheritance disputes between property heirs, an independent expert opinion helps to avoid disputes.

The market value (market value) of land is determined by independent, independent expert committees and reported in market value appraisals. The expert opinions have no binding effect, unless otherwise specified or agreed.

Market value appraisals are also prepared by specially trained publicly appointed and sworn in or certified experts (appraisers).

To prove that you are entitled to apply, please submit appropriate documents (e.g. identity card, extract from the land register or extract from the real estate cadastre of the property to be assessed). Further documents about the valuation object (e.g. construction plans of buildings) may be important for the valuation. If you have such documents, please submit them.

  • Forms: none
  • Online procedure possible: no
  • Written form required: yes
  • Personal appearance necessary: basically yes


Upon request, you will receive an expert opinion on the market value of land if you

  • property owners,
  • beneficiaries equivalent to property owners,
  • holders of other rights to the land, or
  • persons entitled to a reserved portion for whose reserved portion the value of the land is important,


Furthermore, the expert committees for property values provide market value appraisals if

  • the authorities responsible for the implementation of the Building Code,
  • the authorities responsible for determining the value of immovable property or compensation for immovable property, or
  • Courts and judicial authorities

apply for it.
