Pre-Sale Valuations

A pre-sale valuation can be best described as an assessment of a property’s value prior to its sale or acquisition. There are many factors that are taken into consideration when determining the value of a property. This includes; the current market conditions and the potential for growth in the area. Our valuers also take into consideration the supply and demand of similar properties and the overall economic climate.

Undertaking a Pre-Sale Valuation, from an independent valuer, provides you with the knowledge and understanding of how much your property is truly worth vs what your Real Estate Agent (working on commission) tells you it’s worth. Go into the sale process with confidence knowing that your property is on the market for the right price. Remember – Price/worth and value can sometimes be different.

When a property is priced accurately, the negotiation process is often easier and faster. A happy seller and a happy buyer = A great result for all parties involved.

Pre-Purchase Valuations

By engaging with an independent property valuer to undertake a Pre-Purchase Valuation means it will be unclouded by the biases of the seller, real estate agents, banks or other lenders.

As a potential buyer, obtaining an unbiased estimate is ideal if you are looking to make a cash offer, or preparing to purchase at auction, or indeed require a valuation for Stamp Duty of potential future Capital Gains Tax.

With the right knowledge, you can make a more informed and financially clear decision, preventing you from over capitalising and to also identify any opportunities where the value far exceeds the asking price.

Capital Gains Tax

If you own a capital asset, including real estate, and decide to sell it, one of two things will happen. You will make either a Capital Gain or a Capital Loss.

As an Australian resident, your Capital Gains Tax will be applicable to assets that are kept anywhere around the world with either gains or losses needing to be legally declared in your annual income tax return. If you own an investment property that was acquired after 19 Sep. 1985, it may be subject to capital gains tax.

Prior to selling, undertaking an independent property valuation will help you understand how much tax you would be required to pay. This can help better inform you as to when, how much and even if it is the right time to sell your property. An independent valuer can also ensure that when you do sell, that your sale price and tax obligation is accurately calculated (because nobody wants to pay too much tax). Further, you may require a valuation undertaken retrospectively (back dated), from when the property was your principal place of residence and you started renting it out.

We also recommend undertaking an independent valuation if you are planning to move out of your current home and turn it into an investment property. This way, you can ask for the right rate of rent based on the true value of your property.

Other Capital Gains Facts

A Capital Gain is when you dispose of an asset that is greater than what it cost you to acquire it.

A Capital Loss is when the final value of your asset is less than what it originally cost you to obtain it

  • The majority of real estate, for example; a commercial premise, vacant land or a rental property or holiday house will be subject to capital gains tax
  • As a property owner, it is your responsibility to under any tax implications

Superannuation Fund

We will help you undertake a property valuation in relation to the preparation of your Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) financial reporting. In Australia, a valuation of assets must be completed, at a minimum, every 3 years. This needs to be done to confirm that your SMSF is complying with relevant superannuation law.

We can help you during the acquisition of assets between SMSFs and related parties. We can also help you determine the value of assets that support a member’s super pension and so much more.

Generally the reporting for these Funds will be 30 June, therefore we can undertake Retrospective valuations more than likely prior to the end of the next financial year, as gaining access to all properties on the same day may be problematic.

Check Valuations

Sometimes you might just want to know the Current Market Value of your property or would like to obtain a comparison valuation. It is wise to seek a second opinion, particularly if your current appraisal has been carried out on behalf of a lending institution or by a real estate who might have other motivations to either under or over value your property.

As a group of independent property valuers, our valuations are 100% unbiased, realistic and accurate.
