Appraisal reports have been introduced by the Turkish government as an obligation for foreign property sales. The regulation’s biggest purpose was to ensure that foreign investors buy real estate in Turkey at the right price. Another purpose was to consider effective prices while calculating property taxes.
The report is written by two appraisers who are confirmed and validated by the SPK. One of them double-checks the building plans, municipality register information, and the Tapu (title deed) office.
They go to the property to make sure you buy the one that you have seen during a viewing tour. The controller double-checks the accuracy of the house price comparisons and registry. Both are sworn valuation experts who have testified under oath.
The government wants the market value of the property rather than depending on the declared value. Previously, a seller would record a significantly smaller sales amount to avoid paying more conveyance tax. As a result, a valuation report is used as a property indicator for tax purposes.
Real estate valuation is an advantageous service for homeowners, buyers, and investors. The report tells you the value of the property. It also explains the property’s features.
For example, commercial real estate valuation helps an investor understand the potential of a property. On the other hand, estate valuation of personal property can be helpful before reselling your property.
Methodology for Valuation of Real Estate
If you are thinking about buying a property in Turkey, you must be sure of the value of the property. There are two types of real estate valuation methods in Turkey. Real Estate Valuation and Project Valuation with a Feasibility Report are the two forms of appraisal reports.
An appraisal report includes the following information:
- Information about the title deed
- Real photos
- Comparable real estate prices
- Estimation of the property's value
- Examining the debt situation and the technical state of the property.
Depending on your need and property features, a property assessment report may include additional criteria and information. Experts prepare appraisal reports by using one of the three methodologies listed below, depending on the real estate type:
- Method of Comparing Precedents: The property is compared with various other comparable properties.
- The Profit Method: It is based on a property's net income flow.
- Rebuilding Cost Method: Rebuilding cost of the same property under current economic conditions is the cost method.
