Anyone wishing to purchase a plot of land or sell a property will quickly come across the so-called standard land value (PDF) (398 KB) when determining the value of the land. The standard land value is based on the average value of all land in a certain area. The average value, in turn, is derived from previous land sales in this area.
The market value is also influenced by special features offered by the respective property. This can lead to considerable deviations between the sales value and the standard land value.
The standard land value for building land is determined at the end of every second calendar year (§ 196 BauGB). It forms the basis for the taxation of land in Germany. The basis for determining the standard land value is the official collections of purchase prices. These are maintained by the nationwide expert committees for land values.
Pursuant to Section 196 of the German Building Code (Baugesetzbuch), on May 24, 2022, theJoint (PDF) (16 KB) Valuation Committee determined and adopted the standard land values for the member municipalities of Au am Rhein, Bietigheim, Durmersheim, Elchesheim-Illingen, Iffezheim, Muggensturm, Ötigheim, Rastatt and Steinmauern as of the reference date of January 1,2022 (PDF) (16 KB), based on the collection of purchase prices.
