decisions when buying, selling or renovating residential real estate in Brisbane, Ipswich, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast areas.

Ordering a valuation can save you thousands

Engaging an independent local valuer is an essential part of the due diligence process when buying property.  In today’s challenging economic climate, an independent property valuation is a valuable tool to minimise your risk when buying and selling property.

The Queensland Government has introduced a five day cooling off period (excluding auctions) and recommends buyers seek an “independent sworn valuation” to encourage consumers to think carefully about their purchase and obtain professional advice. This was introduced in an effort to protect consumers from two tiered marketing rings uncovered in South East Queensland.

Whilst a lot has been done to uncover these rings, it is still practised by some organisations marketing South East Queensland property interstate and overseas. For example an inner city Brisbane property may be marketed overseas for $400,000 when a figure of $360,000 would be more realistic to a Brisbane based purchaser with access to local knowledge and advice. By ordering a valuation costing a few hundred dollars, a saving of $20,000 is not uncommon.

Before you make a purchase from interstate or overseas

It is essential to obtain advice from an independent source with expert local knowledge. Unlike real estate agents, brokers, marketers and developers, we have no vested interest. WBP Property Group provides our clients with up to date expert advice regarding the worth of the subject property in today’s market. We are specialist real estate valuers with 20 years experience in south-east Queensland property valuations.

Our service doesn’t stop with a valuation report.

A phone consultation accompanies each valuation report.  Our follow up advice is an important part of our service. It’s what sets us apart.

When applying for a temporary or permanent residency visa, you may require a valuation on the property you currently own to satisfy the requirements of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship. We can assist you with competitive fees and a fast turnaround on your report.

A registered valuer inspects the subject property and completes an accurate appraisal of the value of the house and land, residential unit, town house, investment property or vacant land. Our clients are then presented with a comprehensive and independent valuation report. The report is followed up with feedback and advice regarding the subject property and market activity in the surrounding area.
