Insurance Reinstatement Assessment

Valuing a property can be a complex matter, often leading to misconceptions. It's important to recognise that there can be a significant disparity between the market value of a property and its replacement cost. In fact, it's not uncommon for the replacement cost to be as much as three times higher. Market value refers to the estimated selling price in the current real estate market, while the replacement cost represents the expenses involved in reconstructing the property exactly as it is. Various factors, including location, demand, and unique features, influence these valuations.
