Valuation & Advisory

Whether investor, lender or owner-occupier - we produce valuations that stand up to scrutiny by all stakeholders. Holistic. Well-founded. In line with the market. So that you can make decisions on a solid basis.

Without valuation, little or nothing works in the real estate sector. Acquisitions, sales, accounting, financing, refurbishment, risk management, mergers, takeovers, IPOs - all of these must be preceded by a detailed and market-relevant valuation process to ensure that future strategies are on a strong footing, potential buyers and lenders are wholly convinced and the sale is achieved at the right level.

We go through every detail of every asset valuation entrusted to us. On time and precisely tailored to your requirements. Whether it's a comparative value based on purchase prices actually achieved, a replacement cost value based on current land and construction prices, or a capitalised income value of your individual properties and portfolios - each of our analyses ultimately provides you with a realistic and transparently comprehensible value on which you can act credibly in the market. This is also because we work closely with our transaction teams, who are up to date with the latest market activities and price negotiations on a daily basis. We also uncover potential for improvement and advise you proactively. Where are the strengths of the individual property or portfolio? Where are the weak points? And where could you start to sustainably add value?

In addition to the scrutinising eye of the experienced valuer, we also rely on the latest technologies that ensure comprehensive and, above all, reliably complete market research and data collection, accelerating the valuation process and making it even more accurate.

From individual properties to large-volume real estate portfolios in all asset classes. Nationally and internationally.

We carry out assignments of every type, degree of complexity and size. Large-volume portfolios in particular often cross national borders. Thanks to our globally positioned and closely cooperating teams with specialised experts for each location and region, we can handle international projects without gaps. Quickly. As a whole. And with a fixed contact person for our clients. 

Our valuation approach is based on an in-depth understanding of all property types as well as on the expertise of our specialists, who cover the entire spectrum of the market - from the classic asset classes of industrial & logistics, office, retail, residential and hotels to alternative investment classes such as student and micro-living, healthcare properties and senior living facilities. In addition, we also evaluate special properties such as petrol stations and motorway services, stadiums and event venues or even multi-storey car parks and prepare sensitivity and risk analyses for development projects, refurbishments or restructurings.


A deeper insight


What are currently the major challenges in real estate valuation?

Martin Belik, Head of Valuation & Advisory Germany: On the one hand, of course - just as in other areas - the advancing digitalisation. At the moment, it is important to integrate the new technologies into the established processes in a meaningful way and to use them specifically to improve our services. Secondly, we need to be as close to the market as possible. Especially in this country, the market is extremely intransparent. If you are not involved in a particular transaction yourself, you have almost no access to information. Our broad range of services helps us here. In constant exchange with our investment and letting teams, we are always close to the market and can thus serve our clients optimally.


Do trends such as sustainability or smart building play an increasingly important role with regard to the value and valuation of a property?

MB: Definitely. Above all, of course, the topic of sustainability. Because efficiency and a healthy indoor climate are directly linked to lower operating costs, higher net rents, attractiveness and thus also more value. This can even be quantified directly and clearly. In the meantime, the size of the possible user and tenant group for the less sustainable stock has also shrunk considerably. These properties will fall by the wayside in terms of rent and value in the long term.


To what extent is digitalisation also driving efficiency and, above all, accuracy in the valuation process? 

MB: Artificial intelligence is, and will be, extremely helpful in ensuring comprehensive and, above all, reliably complete market research. Collecting and organising all available data. This will significantly speed up the valuation process in the future and make it even more accurate. Nevertheless, the interpretation of this data and the corresponding conclusions will require the discerning human eye of an experienced valuer. Facilitation yes. Complete replacement no.


What should investors currently focus on in terms of performance growth?

MB: Ultimately, each investor relies on different strategies to achieve their respective performance goals. The focus is broadly spread across all asset classes and ranges from core to value-add to opportunistic properties and portfolios. In recent years, it was not only logistics properties that recorded extreme increases in value due to the shift towards online retail. Currently, alternative asset classes such as data centres, healthcare properties and student housing are particularly interesting. They all offer investors good potential for value appreciation.
