Why Get a Full Valuation?

A Full Market Valuation can be required for a variety of different reasons, including securing finance when purchasing a property, for refinancing and when selling. However, check with your bank first as each has their own specific lending criteria.

How is it Calculated?

A Full Market Valuation involves a full inspection of the property as well as an analysis of related sales in the area. The local valuer will then apply their local knowledge and expertise to prepare a final report, which will outline the current market value of your property.

Once your property has been assessed and recent sales analysed, your final report will include:

  • A current market value of the property
  • A description of the property as seen by the valuer, including commentary on features that are affecting the value
  • A list of comparable recent sales in the area, including descriptions and photos of the properties that were used in assessing your property
  • Property photo/s
  • Market commentary
