Expert opinion on the fair value (market value) of developed and undeveloped land

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

If you want to sell a developed or undeveloped plot of land, it can be useful to have the market value of the land determined in order to set the purchase price. Likewise, in the case of inheritance disputes between property heirs, an independent appraisal helps to avoid disputes.

The market value of real estate is determined by independent appraisal committees and reported in market value reports. The appraisals have no binding effect unless otherwise stipulated or agreed.

Market value appraisals are also prepared by specially trained publicly appointed and sworn or certified experts (surveyors).


Process flow
  • To obtain a market value appraisal, please submit a corresponding application to the office of the responsible appraisal committee.
  • First of all, your eligibility to apply will be checked on the basis of the documents submitted.
  • In preparation for the appraisal, the object of valuation (property) is inspected by employees of the office, and the documents are evaluated.
  • The expert committee inspects the valuation object and decides on the market value.
  • The appraisal is completed and sent to you.
  • Finally, the notice of costs is sent out.
