Construction cost calculation and Property valuation

We, cpcm, are Professional Chartered Surveyors (MRICS) in property valuation, better known in Germany as Immobiliengutachter/-analyst

Important notice to all property investors: Why is construction cost calculation in accordance with DIN 276 KG 300+400 necessary?

  1. In Germany, to obtain financing for your investment DIN 276 is the property valuation basis used by the banks, i.e. no DIN 276 = No Bank financing.
  2. You will not get planning permission! The DIN 276 valuation is a legal requirement required by the local planning authorities, namely the German "Bauamt".
  3. The detailed cost plan based on the planning and layout drawings invariably exceed the architect's first estimates. This also automatically allows the Architect to increase his fees immediately under the HOAI! Only after our professional property valuation is it possible to reduce the budget without affecting quality. This is achieved via Value Engineering.
