The aim of this diploma thesis is to evaluate the market value of a detached house (through the cost method) on different locations in the municipalities of Tržič and Radovljica, as well as determining the success of investment into the real estate in question. Investment success is evaluated as the difference between the sales price and the market value of the house. The chosen detached house has a 171.25 m2 ground plan, the residential area being 134.60 m2. The house also has a 600 m2 building plot around it. The market value of the house in question calculated by the cost method, is the sum of the market value of a vacant plot, the cost of municipal charges, and the replacement costs of the construction itself.
After analysing the acquired data we determined that the values of vacant plots vary greatly between the municipalities as well as within the municipalities themselves. This led us to the conclusion that the location has a large influence on the cost of a vacant plot of land, as well as on the cost of the municipal charges. An investment into a detached house in the municipality of Tržič would therefore not render itself, and it would prove risky in the suburban Tržič area. In the municipality of Radovljica however, the investment into a detached house of the size in question would be successful.
