What is the difference between a bank valuation and a property valuation?

While both forms of valuations aim to provide a determination of value, a property valuation is a certified document completed without any kind of bias.

A bank valuation is sought out on behalf of the lender to ascertain loan security. As such, a more conservative value is reached because of the existing bias of wanting to minimise their risk in the case that the loan should be defaulted.

A property valuation, on the other hand, is performed by an independent valuer with the qualifications and industry expertise to provide the fair market value based on an objective analysis. As such, a property valuation is completed with complete professionalism, transparency and without bias.

How does a property valuer calculate value?

A property valuer will rely on the use of three main methodologies in order to calculate value. These are:

  • The Direct Comparison Approach: the property valuer will directly compare the property and over 200 variables to other similar properties in the local area. This is the most common methodology used.
  • The Summation Approach: This is completed as ancillary check used exclusively by API qualified property valuers. It will determine the replacement cost value of improvements and depreciate this by its age. As such, this will then be measured against the underlying land value to determine value.
  • The Capitalisation of Net Income: the property valuer is reserved for commercial properties and uses the net rental income of the subject property to capitalise this at a rate taken by comparable sales.

What is the difference between a current market and a retrospective property valuation?

A current market property valuation determines the fair market value of the subject property in relation to the property market in its current state. As such, a current market property valuation is only valid for 90 days to ensure accuracy and can be used for a variety of purposes while adhering to legislative and legal requirements.

A retrospective property valuation, on the other hand, determines the fair market value of the subject property at a fixed point in the past with a chosen historical date. As such, retrospective property valuations are useful when assisting in determining tax compliance or if subject property has changed hands or is no longer standing.

What is the difference between a real estate agent and a property valuer?

A real estate agent is a professional in the buy and sell process of any subject property, however, are not qualified to provide reliable and sound valuation advice. As such, a real estate agent can provide an estimated value of a property based on market performance that will indicate what the property is believed can be sold for.

A property valuer, on the other hand, holds the qualification to perform a valuation on real property. As such, a property valuer will provide a valuation service based on extensive research and objective data sourced from property databases. A property valuer can provide assurance and certainty over any kind of pre-purchase or pre-sale matter with a comprehensive analysis without any kind of conflict of interest.
