How much is your house worth? Calculate the value of your house yourself.

There are several ways to calculate the value of your property. For example, you can have your home appraised by a sworn appraiser, but of course there are also costs involved. At Quares, on the other hand, our real estate experts can make a valuation of your home completely free of charge and without obligation. Would you rather try it yourself first? Then take into account, among other things, the type of plot, its location and the condition of the building.

The type of plot

First of all, you can calculate the value of your property by estimating the surface area and added value of the plot. For example, a plot with a beautiful, large garden with a swimming pool and/or pond will be worth more than a plot that is enclosed by other houses and where there is only room for a small terrace.

In addition, the shape of the plot plays a role that should not be underestimated. Rectangular plots will have more value on the real estate market, because you can go in many directions with them. Plots with sloping edges and height differences offer fewer possibilities.


The location

In order to calculate the value of your property correctly, you must also take its location into account. Properties with shops, schools and other facilities nearby, will be worth more than very remote houses. Also, the proximity of important approach roads should not be underestimated when calculating the value of your property.

When it comes to location, you should of course not forget the orientation of the property. Houses with a south-facing garden will usually be worth more than houses facing north. However, it is difficult to say what the best orientation is for a property, because everything has its advantages and disadvantages. A south-facing house is nice if you like a lot of sunlight, but can cause overheating in the summer. The north is the coldest orientation, but makes sure that there is always a 'constant light' coming in.


The condition of the building

The condition of the building also has an important impact on the value of your home. The condition of a building means a reduction in the value of your home based on age, use, frequency of maintenance and the quality of the subsoil. This percentage of wear and tear is inversely proportional to the value of the property.

In addition, the energy performance of the dwelling contributes to its value. If the house has recently been renovated and is therefore better insulated and more energy efficient, its value will increase significantly. Please make sure that you can submit the correct certificates.


The concept of the home

Finally, the concept of the house will help determine its value. Is the house user friendly and is the house functionally classified, this will benefit the value of the house. Homes that are flexibly furnished, so that they can easily be changed, will also have an added value.
