Appraisals

Over 40 years of experience in real estate in St Barts, coupled with extensive knowledge of the vast majority of the island’s properties, allows Sibarth Real Estate to appraise the value of any given property with confidence and precision.

Sibarth Real Estate offers appraisal services to clients of the agency and homeowners on the island. Our objective is not to attract listing agreements with overvalued appraisals.

We offer honest appraisals that represent the realistic value of the property. All appraisals are based on similar transactions effectuated by Sibarth Real Estate as well as on current price trends in the market.

Occasionally, clients inquire about the disparity that exists in appraisals provided on the island. If you should encounter this, we advise that you ask that agency about the number of transactions completed at that price during the past three years. There is a connection: the fewer the transactions, the larger the disparity.

Although we do not encourage our clients to purchase property solely based on its potential to generate rental income, this is often an important element in the decision-making process.

With the owner’s consent, we can often provide the current income and expenses for villas listed for sale that are currently in a rental program.
