It is an official report, completed by a qualified realtor, that attaches a monetary value to a property and is recognised as an expert opinion.
A valuation helps you understand the actual value of your property and what it is worth on the market so that you can get the best deal for your sale or lease.
If you are looking to remortgage your property, an accurate valuation will help you secure a better deal with your bank.
If you want to insure your property, getting an accurate valuation means you can adequately protect your home and assets.
There are five methods of property valuation that are globally recognised:
1. Comparative method
Comparing the property with similar properties. This is used for most residential investors.
2. Investment method
Using discounted cash flow techniques to establish value through the incoming producing nature of the asset. This is often used in commercial valuations.
3. Residual method
Using the cost of developing the land and the final gross development value to assign a value for the land. This is used for development sites.
4. Profits method
This is used for business premises, such as hotels, shopping malls, and cinemas.
5. Replacement cost method
Using the cost of the land and the cost to rebuild the structure as the basis of the valuation. This is often used for buildings with little comparable evidence, such as churches and schools.
