What is Property Valuation?
Property valuation is the process of determining the fair market value of a property. A qualified and unbiased registered valuer usually provides an accurate estimate of the property’s worth. Moreover, the valuation report takes into account the historical sales data of similar properties in the vicinity to ensure an accurate and fair assessment.
How Property Valuation Can Benefit You as an NRI?
If you have bought or inherited a property before 2000, you have two options when you sell it. You can either use the purchase price as the cost basis or use the fair market value as the cost basis. Using the purchase price as the cost basis may result in a higher capital gain tax, as the property’s value may have appreciated significantly over time. This is where property valuation can come in handy.
If you choose to use a valuation report as the cost basis, it can help you save a lot of taxes. For instance, suppose you bought a property for one lakh rupees and are selling it for one crore rupees. The capital gain tax you may have to pay would be quite significant. The valuation report estimates the cost of the property as of 2000 to be around 30-40 lakh rupees if someone gets it done. By using this valuation report as the cost basis, you can significantly reduce the capital gain tax you would have to pay.
