Appraisal of an apartment for obtaining a mortgage loan


The apartment valuation service is most often ordered when a mortgage loan is needed in the apartment purchase process to determine the property's market value at the time of the transaction. Despite this, the appraisal of the apartment can also be ordered in cases where the apartment is planned to be purchased without attracting additional financing, such as to make sure that the transaction amount corresponds to the market level, as well as to find out the market value before selling the apartment.

 

Factors taken into account when determining the market value of an apartment

The location, the technical condition of the residential building and the apartment premises, as well as other influencing factors necessary for determining the market value of the apartment are taken into account in the apartment valuation process. The main factors affecting the market value:

  • The completed reconstructions – their compliance with the Latvian Building Code and legal status. If the apartment was remodeled, the appraiser will ask to present the documentation and will verify its compliance with the Latvian Building Code, and note whether the apartment has been remodeled without coordination.
  • Technical condition of the premises, quality of finishing.
  • Sustainability and technical condition of the residential building - for example, year of construction, materials used, building management.
  • The rationality of the room planning – the functionality of the composition of the rooms and their compliance with the best way of use.
  • Location, which is one of the most important factors in the market value of a property.

When determining the market value of the apartment, additional nuances are also taken into account, such as the area of the apartment, the presence of a balcony or loggia, the height of the ceiling, the improvement of the surrounding area, the infrastructure of the neighborhood.

Objective determination of the market value of the apartment is carried out by independent and certified real estate appraisers, who develop the appraisal in accordance with the Latvian Property Appraisal Standard.

Apartment valuation process


The apartment valuation process takes place in several stages:

  1. Agreement on the work assignment. At the beginning, the client provides the appraiser with information about the composition of the object to be appraised, what needs to be appraised (for example, only an apartment appraisal or an apartment with a warehouse, parking space), for what purpose the appraisal is needed (appraisal for submission to the bank or for another purpose) and what value base should be determined (current market value or future market value). In addition, the client must submit appropriate documentation, which will be requested by the appraiser (property rights documentation, cadastral survey file with room plan, etc.).
  2. Object survey. The appraiser inspects the object (apartment, if there is one, then also the warehouse adjoining the apartment, the parking lot), takes photos and checks the compliance of the submitted documentation on the spot.
  3. Determining the market value and preparing the valuation report. The valuation is prepared in accordance with the Latvian Property Valuation Standard LVS 401:2013, which also complies with the International Valuation Standards (IVS 2022).
