The most common purpose of an independent property valuation is to ascertain market value.

What is market value?

The definition of market value was tested in Spencer v The Commonwealth of Australia (1907) and is known to be… The estimated amount for which an asset should exchange on the date of valuation between a willing buyer and a willing seller in an arms length transaction after proper marketing wherein each party had acted knowledgeably, prudently and without compulsion.

How long will it take to receive the property valuation report?

The turnaround time of a valuation is dependent upon a variety of variables, mainly being the property type (eg. residential, commercial), purpose of valuation (e.g. mortgage, litigation, pre-purchase/disposal) and approximate value of the property. Generally, residential valuations are completed within 2 business days of instruction and commercial valuations are completed within 10 business days of instruction. The circumstances and time-frame requirements of each particular client are considered.

What do we require to commence the valuation ?

In order for us to undertake a valuation exercise we require written instructions. The instructions can be in the form of an e-mail, letter or fax and should state the purpose of the valuation, the address of the property, contact details for access and that the client agrees to the pre-negotiated fee. Once instructions are received our administration staff will organise for a valuer to inspect the subject property as soon as possible.
