VALUE EXPERTISE FOR COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE AND INDUSTRIAL BUILDINGS
When buying or selling a commercial property, the big difference to conventional residential properties is the valuation. In contrast to simple residential properties, which are valued according to the asset value method, commercial properties are valued according to the capitalised earnings value method (also known as the DCF method) - supported, however, by the asset value method.
It is important that you should always inform yourself in advance about the exact framework conditions regarding the procedure for determining the value of commercial properties. In addition, a commercial property is treated differently for tax purposes than a purely residential property. The capitalised earnings value method is used in particular for buildings and land for which the income that can continue to be generated is of primary importance for the assessment of value on the market. This applies to residential rental properties (multi-family houses), commercial properties (office buildings, commercial buildings, shopping centres) and special properties (hotels, multi-storey car parks, logistics areas) but also mixed-use properties. This includes, for example, residential buildings in which a workshop or retail space is integrated.
The commercial use of a property can also be on a smaller scale. If, for example, a rented flat is used primarily for commercial purposes, it can be declared a commercial property under certain conditions.
