A real estate consultation is a technical and/or economic opinion, drafted by a recognized expert, in a formal and official report for which the expert is professionally held liable, to clarify a situation, to defend you and when needed, for litigation purposes for legal proceedings.
The consultation refers to both the knowledge and the competencies of the expert. In real estate an expert, with his know-how, can formulate a technical and/or economic opinion. This opinion takes the form of a formal report for which the expert is professionally held liable. It is always preceded by a detailed analysis of the situation. It can be founded on observations, documentary research and/or any required interviews.
Our experts collect and analyze the information before establishing their conclusions. For example, to determine the fair market value of a house or apartment, meaning the fair price at which it could be bought or sold, our real estate experts analyze the property (type, location, square footage) and its surrounding environment (transportation infrastructures, proximity to cities). Property title (exact contents, easements, purpose), construction contract, complete set of house plans, rental contracts... are all useful.
A real estate consultation is based on specific needs. Common sense should sometimes triumph over the strict application of methodologies. Our experts adapt their analyses to the objectives of the individual. The reasons for carrying out a real estate assessment can vary; the different techniques employed for estimating the fair market value of a house vary according to whether the objective is to know the value of an estate to sell, to pledge or to prepare a divorce.
Whether it be an economic, technical or environmental consultation, our experts formalize their analyses and conclusions in a report. The aim of the report is to clairify, inform and secure the decisions made by individuals. As the expert is held professionally liable, the report can be used for out-of-court negotiations or for legal proceedings.
