House Appraisal For Your Property?
Read This First:
If you’re thinking about selling, you’ll be needing a house appraisal and some guidance on the approximate value of your home in the current market.
A house appraisal and market appraisal often yields two different home values. Let me explain …
For the uneducated or uninitiated, this can be a particularly confusing time, because it’s a good bet you’ve already had a chat to your partner, friends, family and neighbours about the potential selling price your home might achieve.
Along with your own opinion, there’s also your lawyer’s opinion, and probably your accountant’s, and then there’s the agent who recklessly informs you it will sell for “moonbeams”, just to try and secure your business.
There we have 8 different opinions about the value of your home, and of course, everyone thinks they’re an expert.
The only opinion that really matters of course (#9), is the market’s.
To get a ball park picture of where your home’s value sits in the market place, requires a detailed look into previous sales in your area.
Living in Auckland doesn’t automatically guarantee you a “squillion dollars” when you sell, so let me tell you how I go about my appraisals.
I have access to three different Real Estate portals, including the REINZ, that deliver detailed up-to-date facts and figures about every Real Estate transaction in your street, suburb and district.
From this information, I’m able to produce comparisons between the features of your property, and similar properties to yours that have sold over the last 3 to 6 months, longer if needed.
The house appraisal figure or range I produce from this information is a statistical analysis, that is neither right, nor wrong. It is only a document of record detailing what similar type homes like yours, sold for, and when.
Yes, it’s fair to say every home is different, and for varying reasons, should expect their own unique selling price, or even a premium. But that’s a discussion that brings about how your home is presented to market, and how to raise the perception of home value in the buyer’s mind.
But that’s a discussion for another day … or, if you’d like the “good oil” on how to showcase and present your home to the market, grab a copy of my new book, Rock The House. You can order a FREE copy HERE, along with all the “goodies” that come with it …
First Things First …
You’ll be needing that statistical property analysis I was talking about.

“When Simon and I started looking for a new house, we knew in the back of our minds a huge part of the process was going to be finding someone to market our property when it came time.
Luckily for us, I met Tim at one of the first open homes I went to.
I really appreciated how he treated me as a buyer: he was friendly, fair, honest, and made it clear from day 1 that he was working for his vendor. He did a fantastic job on that property and we unfortunately missed out on the house, but I knew that Id found our real estate agent.
We finally ended up buying a house about a month later with Tim’s guidance even though the property wasn’t listed with Tim’s company. Tim is always willing to help even when there is no clear incentive for him to do so.
We had never sold a house before, but when it came time to put our house on the market, with Tim on board we were 100 percent comfortable, 100 percent of the time.”
“He had a clear process that he explained to us, and he followed it every step of the way. His communication, work ethic, marketing and discretion was outstanding and he had our house sold in 8 days.
We never anticipated getting such a great result and are certain we would have not achieved this result without Tim. I would recommend Tim to anyone and everyone, he is extraordinary at what he does.“
