ADDITIONAL PROPERTY VALUATION INFORMATION
Would you like some information about property valuations in general?
Melbourne Property Valuation provides high quality and fully independent property valuation reports. All our valuers are expert fully certified practising valuers registered with the Australian Property Institute, and each one has a minimum 15 years valuation experience .
Finding a property valuer to undertake a valuation for you can be daunting, and having to trust a stranger with the important task of valuing what could be your most valuable asset is sometimes difficult.
We specialise in independent house valuations throughout Melbourne. All property valuers have grown up in Melbourne, worked full time in Melbourne as house valuation experts and understand the property market here. House valuations are the most common form of property valuation, but being the most common type of property valuation does not always make it the simplest.
Melbourne Property Valuation is committed to providing the highest quality valutaion reports and service to both private clients and regular allied professional clients such as accountants, solicitors and financial planners etc.
Every property valuation we undertake is different.
Every client is different, no two properties are exactly the same, and the background surrounding the purpose for the valuation is also always slightly different. We understand this, and treat every client with the respect and care they deserve, with the goal of having a happy client, and hopefully ongoing or referral property valuation work.
Can you truly provide an independent property valuation in Melbourne?
Yes is the answer. We are not real estate agents, mortgage brokers or anything else. All property valuers have always worked as property valuation experts and have no links, agreements, or relationship with any business.
We are solely in business to provide expert house valuation advice and property valuations in Melbourne.
Is there anything I should look or ask for when choosing a property valuer?
The obvious answer if of course yes. When looking for a Melbourne property valuer to undertake a property valuation we suggest you ask about the details of the actual valuer who will be undertaking the valuation, their experience and exactly what you can expect to receive from them in a report. With Melbourne Property Valuation you can speak directly to the valuer before the valuation is undertaken, at the inspection, and also afterwards. There are no secretaries or managers to cover for our valuers.
The cost of a property valuation matters, and it’s just human nature to want the cheapest price, but it needs to be kept in mind that people who are well regarded in their field are usually busy, have a much better idea than you about what is a fair price to pay for a property valuation, and want to provide you with a high quality service to keep their reputation strong.
Just asking for a price without asking about the items mentioned above is a recipe for disappointment in far to many cases.
It’s not simply a case that because two people are qualified in the same field it means that you can expect to receive the same level service or advice. This is true for all professions, especially where the lowest price is the only attraction to using one business.
Do you ever say no to clients?
Yes, it happens. Either we are to busy to provide what we feel is the service a client requires in an appropriate time frame, the valuation requirements are outside of our scope of expertise, or if we feel the client is not being honest about their situation and requirements, then we will decline to provide a quote or valuation.
Anything else I should know about a property valuation Melbourne?
There is further information on our website in regards to the qualifications a property valuer must have and hold, and also different terms that mean the same thing ie: sworn valuer and certified valuer if you need it.
We suggest filling out our online contact form or calling us to discuss a property valuation if you have any questions.
There is no obligation and a few minutes on the phone may save you lots of time and stress.
Some further information about the process of obtaining a valuation is detailed below:
Reason for the valuation
1. Firstly we need to discuss with you the property (or properties) that you would like valued and the reason for the valuation. We are looking to confirm if its a residential property a commercial property, rural property etc. and some basic details about it to help form a picture of what we would be valuing.
Date the property
2. The date the property needs to be valued at also needs to be confirmed. Usually a property is valued as at the date it is inspected by the valuer, but it can be retrospectively valued if required. If this is the case we need confirmation as to the condition of the property as at the date of valuation, and if access if not possible may require some further background information such as internal layout, condition, features etc. We have valued properties back more than 30 years when required to do so by clients for example.
Purpose of the valuation
3. The purpose of the valuation is one critical area that many clients initially may not see a reason to worry about, but as valuers we are looking to provide you with the right type of report for your situation, If you need a capital gains tax valuation for example, a straight forward, but still relatively detailed report will be fine, but if you are looking for a report to be used as expert evidence in the Supreme Court, well then you obviously need something much more complex.
Provide you with a quote
4. Once we have understood the particulars of the property to be valued, the date of valuation and reason for the property valuation then we can provide you with a quote, and if accepted then go on to arrange an inspection of the property
To whom to address the report
5. After accepting the property valuation quote some of the others details we need to undertake the valuation are the name/s of who to address the report to (which can also be a company, superannuation fund etc.), details of who to invoice, and also confirmation of who to send the report to once its ready.
6. Next is the inspection. At the inspection the property valuer will take detailed written notes, photos and also measure all of the improvements. This information will be used in creating your valuation report. A straightforward detached residential dwelling may take around 20-30 minutes, a small flat less, a large commercial property more.
Discuss any aspects of the valuation
7. At the inspection the valuer will also be happy to discuss any aspects of the valuation you are interested in obtaining more information about, current property market conditions and almost other things relating to valuations.
Complete the report
8. Once the inspection has been undertake the valuer will then complete the report. This usually takes 2-3 days for a simple valuation, and sometimes significantly longer if its a complex matter. The time frame for completing the report will have been agreed upon prior to accepting any valuation instructions, and we are almost always ready to send reports when we say it will be done.
