Why get a valuation?
10 Good Reasons to get a Valuation from Williams’ Harvey.
Your property is more often than not your most valuable asset. Therefore it is prudent to obtain an independent report from a registered valuer when making any property decisions.
We deal with property values every day. We have experts in all facets of the property market so that we can best advise you on your property needs. We are independent and we are the experts. Our knowledge allows you to make the best decisions in the current market regarding your property.
1. Are you buying or selling a property?
When buying or selling a property there is always a concern that you may be offering too much and conversely, when selling, there is a concern that you could be underselling. The only way to eliminate the guesswork is to get a professional to value your property. As a practice of Registered Valuers, Williams’ Harvey is an independent third party who can value your property at the current market value. Beware, an appraisal by a Real Estate Salesperson is not a valuation. For further advice please download our information brochure.
2. Is your property taking too long to sell?
Have you had your property for sale for a long time with little or no interest? Are you sure you are asking the right price? Williams’ Harvey can value your property as an independent third party and advise you of the current market value of your property and suggest an appropriate asking price. Statistics show that when a property sells, the asking price is normally within a 2%-3% of the eventual sale price.
