Valuations

A reliable, friendly, helpful, hard-working estate agent, at your beck and call!

 When we assess the market value of your property, we consider the following key factors:

  • The seller’s unique situation: including financial pressure or reason for sale to determine speed of sale.
  • Address and surroundings: a building going up in between you and your view might adversely affect your value, a good school nearby would lift the value.
  • Current market conditions.
  • Prices of comparative properties sold and for sale in the vicinity of your home.
  • Accommodation offered.
  • Condition of interior and exterior of the buildings.
  • Standard of finishes.
  • Additional features and capital improvements

 

We will not overprice your property as this could adversely affect your final sale price.

  • The property may sit on the market at first and when buyers ask “why hasn’t it sold?” or “what is wrong with it? the outcome is usually a lower sale price than the value.
  • Over-pricing a property can also be problematic if a bond valuer doesn’t find value. This may result in the bank asking the buyer to find extra money, often in the region of hundreds of thousands of Rand.

 

Once you have appointed us to market your property:  we will perform a more thorough examination of your property to check for latent defects that might affect this valuation, prior to marketing this property.
