The real estate unit has a classification lower than class C (D, E, F or G), and the apartment was built or renovated before 2010, it is quite normal. Obviously, we will have to foresee some well-done requalification interventions so that, in addition to the theoretical value, the improvement of the class leads to tangible benefits and energy savings. Instead, the class is high level (class C, B or even A), it would be appropriate to delegate an expert technician, with the aim of verifying the correspondence. It happens, especially on the “new” that the builders make a mess of materials, but even more so on their correct laying then, in any case, the certification is always excellent.

Check the acoustic comfort

If the unit is derived from a fractionation back to 1997, have passive acoustic requirements checked with the appropriate instrumentation. For some time, major devaluations have been recognized by the courts in the absence of compliance with legal requirements. The same will probably happen soon, also for energy certifications.

Check for the presence of a garage

In the event that the property is in the center and does not have a garage or appurtenant, check whether, in compliance with the local Building Regulations, a parking space has been provided within a radius of 500 m, at the time of construction of the housing unit. In this case, request the combined seat without any additional costs. Sometimes it can happen that the parking lot is attached, to get the building permit and then the parking space is sold separately for obvious profit purposes.

Get the thousandth carats The Ultimate Los Cabos Homebuyer Guide

The condominium assessments, if there is a condominium, should not be underestimated. The characteristics that affect the thousandth value are many. The main one is the useful surface, together with any accessories (cellars, garage, gardens, terraces, etc.). To this verification, the so-called correction coefficients should be added, which usually differentiate the thousandth carats. Mandatory features are destination coefficient, floor coefficient, orientation coefficient, elevation coefficient (view), brightness coefficient, global function coefficient (proximity to transport, presence of a lift above the three floors, etc.), the awe ratio (exposure to winds), and the internal free height coefficient. Others can be added, thermal insulation, last in terms of novelty and with reference to what was mentioned. Then get the updated tables and check them with the required economic evaluation, before making the final purchase.

Deepen existing (or possible) volumes

When the building is isolated, if it is old, check the possible possibility of modification, extension, and / or restructuring based on local planning instruments. If instead, it is recent or new, evaluate its external appearance, the fluidity of the forms, and above all, if following careful observation, there are visual inconsistencies, give it a convincing justification. In some cases the garages are sold as habitable appendices, the same can be said of practicable but not habitable attics or basements, or bathrooms in the basements or in the attics, of technical rooms or arcades closed by windows or similar.

It is not difficult to find, for excessive values, surfaces that are not regularly habitable. For example, it is good to know that in the case of an appraisal for a possible loan, the attic is valued at max. 60% of the value of living areas; and in many cases the heights of the living areas, unless you are in a high mountain country, by law must not be less than 2.70 m. While the bathrooms, kitchenettes, and hallways must have a minimum height of 2.40 m. This applies in all cases.
