Value Added Reports:

Property Value Seller Report

View sample report

Use your address or ID number and get a property value sellers report to estimate the current market value of your property with added features regarding the suburb the property resides in.

We have an analytical model called the Automated Valuation Model which uses repeat sales methodology in an area to predict the value of residential properties. It includes some great insights into property details, a valuation on the property with a high and a low value to understand a market price range that a property could transact within. A number of lenders use the AVM during the bond application process so it’s a good indicator of what the lenders will use to make their lending decision on.
