Abstract: As the real estate represents one of the most important part of assets for the state and for the individuals, its valuation is currently in the spotlight even in Albania. The aim of this paper is to analyze the use of assessment methods of real estate in Albania. The paper first describes the methods that Albanian appraisers use in evaluating and their application areas For each of the methods are defined strengths and weaknesses. Analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the methods leads to the important conclusion that in order to narrow the differences in the values reported by different appraisers for the same property and the same purpose of valuation, the accurate and correct use of each method of evaluation should require a unification of methodologies within each method simultaneously with the necessity of developing national standards of real estate assessment
