Our knowledge of the local housing market, the supply and demand of apartments for every district of the city, the average prices of apartments (1) and commercial properties, and also the profile of new home buyers for each city location, allow us to make an accurate valuation of the sale price of your property. Currently, our real estate agent list over 300 apartments and commercial properties for sale in the city (from 1-2 bed apartments to family 4-5 bedroom apartments). The value of your apartment in Berlin will first depend on the local area and the home offer / demand for similar apartments and homes on the housing market. The apartment value will also depend on the building type and construction year (i.e new-built development or period building), the building condition and monthly costs, the presence of place to park, the building amenities, the transportations and facilities in the area (i.e distance to metro station). The value will also take into view the living space (sqm), the number of bedrooms and baths, the heating type, the floor and the presence of a balcony or a terrace. The apartment interior condition is a main factor for setting-up the apartment sale price: an apartment in need of complete renovation will sell with up 20% less value compared to a brand new apartment on the market. For the sale of an investment property, the value will also take into view the rent income, the market demand and the rent prices in the area, the expected rental yield / return that could get the new apartment buyer. The long-term market value potential and the expected price development in the area are also important factors for setting the apartement sale price.
