What is a valuation?
A valuation is a professional assessment of how much your property is worth. Our valuer will inspect the property, consider all the factors that affect the value and write-up a professional property report and valuation.
THE BENEFITS OF A VALUATION
-Professional and experienced advice
Our experienced valuers can provide you with tips on what would add value to a property, e.g. creating more outdoor living, upgrading your amenities etc.
As professionals, valuers must meet rigorous tests of education, training and competence and follow a professional code of practice.
-Avoid legal pitfalls
Our valuers can check the title of the property, particularly for cross-leased properties, to highlight any issues that you should be aware of, e.g. an easement (right of way) that crosses two properties might mean a neighbour could ask you to share the cost of a new driveway or fence.
A valuer can also tell you about the zoning for the property to minimize the risk of surprises after you buy the property, e.g. a light commercial or industrial business springing up next door!
Please note, a QV Valuer does not replace a solicitor in providing legal advice.
A valuation provides the benefit of local knowledge about the area including nearby (and future) developments such as airports, shopping malls, lifestyle blocks, roading or motorway changes, etc. This is especially important to consider if you are changing suburbs or moving into a new area. They will also let you know about a property's subdivision potential (great if you would like to extend or build another property on your land in the future).
-Save time and money
If you are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a property, a registered property valuation is money well spent. It can save you time, money and property headaches down the track.
-Your bank may require one
Many banks only raise mortgages conditional on a registered valuation. So if you are really keen on a property, a registered valuation is often a must.
Whether you are buying your first home or negotiating a large commercial property deal, you need a specialist, a valuer who knows property and knows your region. Most importantly, that valuer must take the time to understand your particular needs.
