An appraisal is a valuation of the value of your property by a licensed appraiser. You will receive an appraisal report (taxatierapport). This is important when you want to buy, sell or insure a house. The name of an appraiser is taxateur.
The cost of a taxatierapport are not regulated and will diver with the taxateur (appraiser). So I can be wise to shop around. Normally the prices are between 500 and 1000 euro. Depending the hours it will take the taxateur.
Because an appraisal is a snapshot of the current situation, your mortgage provider requires a report not older then 6 months.
