We appraise over 20'000 homes every year
Our automated valuation tool delivers the most accurate property appraisal in less than 5 minutes (it is based on thousands of real property transactions in Switzerland). We use what’s called a ‘statistical regression’, a form of artificial intelligence (AI), which doesn’t require any human interaction or intervention.
The accuracy of our valuation tool is, in part, a function of historical data from several hundred thousand property sales. Our valuation application is fed by 4 models (our own proprietary model plus the 3 models used by banks, i.e. IAZI, Wuest Partner and PriceHubble to grant new mortgages). The net benefit for clients is a valuation tool that provides the most up to date and accurate property appraisals in the Swiss property market.
RealAdvisor provides our clients with a free property valuation tool similar to that used by professional real estate brokers throughout Switzerland. It leverages the most reliable and accurate data available, and is also used by banks, insurance companies, and pension funds to assess mortgages.
We analyse and assess the value of a property based on 70 quantitative and qualitative criteria. 20 relate to the characteristics of your property (living surface, number of rooms, land area, condition, etc), while the other 50 pertain to the quality of your property’s location (access to public transport, schools, air quality, neighbourhood safety, etc).
Your property is compared to the sale price of thousands of similar properties sold over the past few months, with price, clearly, in part, a function of location. Our model is optimized continuously to ensure the most accurate property evaluations possible.
Our valuation methods are based on more than 500,000 real transactions.
This represents over 80% of Swiss property sales over the past 10 years.
Our algorithms are updated by data from over 25,000 property sales every year.
After completing your free online property valuation, we will continue to support you throughout the remainder of the process.
We work closely with local real estate brokers that have been carefully assessed and chosen as partners based on both their professionalism and performance. The brokers we partner with share their commission with us in exchange for our products and services.

There are 3 major automated valuation model providers in Switzerland: IAZI, Wuest and Pricehubble. We have licensed all 3 models and run them for every single home that is appraised on our website.
We then combine the results and apply our own corrections, developed internally with the help and experience of real estate professionals. Examples of corrections include those that are applicable to large areas of land that come with planning permission, laws limiting the price of properties - for instance in the Geneva development zone - and, property/land within agricultural zones, etc.
See the point above, where we explain why our appraisal is the most accurate in the Swiss market.
There are several ways to assess the value of an apartment or a house. At RealAdvisor, our experts will help you navigate through each of these appraisal methods to determine the market price of your property.
This statistical method compares your property with thousands of historical transactions to determine its value.
Automated valuations are very precise for standard properties for which there are many recorded transactions. For unique or luxury homes, the estimates are less accurate due the lack of comparable transactions.
This is an examination of the prices of similar properties currently on the market.
The real estate agent is very close to the market, thus he is the best person to help you set the price based on how well your home ranks against the competition.
The term intrinsic value represents the real or actual value of a property. This is how it's computed:
New value - Depreciation + Plot value = Intrinsic Value
This method does not factor in the supply and demand in the market, which makes it difficult to apply, because the value of the land is hard to estimate.
When a plot has allocated space for further construction, it is very common that the value of the land itself is higher than the value of the building it currently hosts.
In these cases, the owners are more likely to receive interesting offers from property developers.
RealAdvisor experts systematically assess if a plot has development potential.
