The market price will 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 also main factor for setting-up the right market sale price: an apartment in need of complete renovation will be sell with 20% price discount compared to a renovated new apartment on the market. The home listing price will also depend on the building type and construction year (i.e new-built development or period building), the building condition and the monthly costs, the building amenities and the transportations / facilities in the area (i.e distance to next metro station). For the sale of an investment property, the market price valuation will also take into view the rental income, the market demand and the prospective rent price 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.
