How is a property valued?

A property valuation always starts with a site inspection during which the valuer will measure the property and collect relevant internal and external property information.

As we all know the best indication of value is what others have paid for a similar property in a similar location. So the most common method of valuing a property remains analysis of comparable properties sold in the locality.

In more complex cases there are other valuation methods such as simulation and normative modelling. Regarding these two we will be happy to discuss these other methods personally with you for your difficult to value property.

Irrespective of the method used the valuation process should be holistic and must remain independent, logical and the outcome verifiable.

Valuers at My Valuation are skilled and experience and are able to draw in this expertise to provide valuations that are logical, internally consistent and transparent.

How much does a valuation cost?

The cost of a valuation depends on what is being valued and the purpose for which the valuation is required. Our valuations start from $350 plus GST. Sometimes we charge for disbursement for items such as the cost of title and other Lands Title Office searches.

In all cases, we are very negotiable and will match any reasonable quote in addition to providing better quality service.

Can you provide retrospective valuations or an earlier dated valuation?

Yes, we can.

These valuations are usually for tax purposes.

The cost is usually marginally higher due to the additional work involved in assessing earlier zoning and land use control regulations and earlier sales.

What do I get for my money in a valuation report?

Valuation reports are generally very detailed and can run into several tens of pages based on your requirements. But generally a valuation report will include in a holistic manner the following:
– A confirmation of your instructions including importantly the purpose for which the valuation is required.

What is the difference between and appraisal and a valuation?

A property appraisal is given by an agent and usually prepared at the request of an intending vendor. All vendors naturally are hopeful for the best possible price and hence appraisals tend to be inherently biased towards the upper end of the price range. More importantly, an appraisal has no legal standing.

A valuation, on the other hand, is an independent and impartial assessment of a property value provided by a qualified valuer with the pre-requisite education and training. A valuer is a member of a professional body and bound by the professional practice standards and code of conduct of the professional body. A valuation has legal standing and therefore can be an expert report.
