Property Valuation.

January 4, 2019

Why Property Valuation?

Well, although you may not be looking to sell your property yet, getting your property evaluated will help you gain important information about your property. In fact, a property valuation can be  helpful in knowing the actual worth of your principal asset.

Planning for a Renovation:

When you want to consider a renovation project for your home such as adding a new pool or backyard area or home interiors, a property valuation becomes imperative. Property renovation process can get costly and it is essential to keep an eye over the budget so that you don’t overcapitalise (for instance, it’s not a wise decision to add a modern swimming pool to a house property that is having a low resale value). You can get your property valued from a reliable property valuer and ascertain the accurate value of your property.

Buying a Second Property for Investment:

If you want to buy a second property just for investment purpose then your equity in your primary property can act as the collateral for the purchase. Generally, banks will lend over eighty percent of the purchase price of an investment property when you use your property as collateral. A property valuation will let you know how much equity you possess in your property, and accordingly how much loan you will be able to acquire for buying your second property.

Refinancing Your Primary Loan:

If your home property is mortgaged and your original loan term is ending or you’re looking to switch products or lenders, a property valuation becomes crucial. Depending on the lender and your own preference, a property valuation can be performed either through a property valuer of your lender’s choice or a third party. You may want to switch to a loan product that provides a lower rate of interest that could result in significant savings eventually, change an interest-only product for a principal and interest arrangement. Property valuation will give you grounds to discuss better terms with financing institutions.

Oftentimes, real estate market experiences a notable growth, which means likelihood your home/property may have accumulated value. In case, your home/property hasn’t accrued value, once you know your its value, you’re in a better position to make financial decisions moving forward. In addition, a valuation will facilitate you to make a will that hands-out your property as per your wishes.

You can opt to have an informal or formal property valuation depending on the purpose of the valuation. If you just want an estimate to know your property’s net worth or find out whether selling would benefit you financially, a real estate agent can normally provide you with decent approximation about your home property’s value on the open market, for more accurate estimate and advisory contact a valuer. If financial institutions need to perform a mortgage or refinance, they will organise valuations.

Finally and importantly, you can also hire an independent, qualified property valuer for evaluating your property.
