Automatiska Värderingssystem - En hjälp för Fastighetsmäklaren?

Computers and business systems are used more frequently in a world where IT gradually is taking over. This is also true when it comes to the real estate valuation process where actors on the Swedish real estate market are using automatic valuation systems for real estate appraisal. But the real estate agents have not yet seen the charm in using these automatic valuation systems for real estate appraisal. Can the real estate agents also use the automatic valuation systems? We developed our three main subjects: the valuation process, an automatic valuation system and the real estate market with assistance from scientific articles. Through these articles we will present a background to real estate appraisal in general. We choose a qualitative approach where we interviewed eight real estate agents and complemented this by conducting a telephone interview with a business area manager at a private valuation institute. The result of this paper shows that the real estate firms rely on data from earlier purchases and that they use different IT-based tools in order to make an accurate appraisal. An automatic valuation system with extended information can be very helpful for the real estate agents depending on which part of the country the real estate agent works in. However the automatic valuation system can never replace the ocular inspection. In neighbourhoods where the houses look the same there’s a greater need for an extended base of information through an automatic valuation system. In areas with unique locations and houses that are difficult to compare the demands are higher on the content of the system to be correct and updated. In this way the automatic valuation system can be used in the housing market and fulfils a need in both types of areas as a complement to the ocular inspection.
