Having a building surveyor on hand in Germany is advantageous for the prospective buyer. The overwhelming majority of property on offer in Germany is actually pre-existing real estate. That means that you will come across used properties. Normally, used property is “brought as it is seen“. A property visit is decisive to determine whether the property has its problems, ones that reduce the property value or ones that could lead to a loss in property value. In today’s day and age of increasing property prices, any desired property should be properly investigated. In the absence of specialist knowledge and expertise, a visit to a property often leads to no meaningful conclusion, e.g. whether the basic structure of the building or its heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration appropriately match the price offered or whether buying the house will cause even greater difficulties and additional extra costs.
Having a thorough property check by a highly experienced building surveyor protects you against negative surprises. The building surveyor and the further buyer shall walk through and evaluate the desired property. Soon after, there is a follow-up discussion on existing defects, potential additional costs for repair as well as a fair purchase offer price for the property.
Our realistic evaluation of the property and the purchase price offers you a peace of mind that this support brings to you and your decision.
Complementing our flat fee rate, we can happily draw up an individual and non-binding offer, especially if your desired property deviates from the norm and has special features.
