Welcome to Doyle Valuations. We hope you find our website helpful in providing the information you require.

Buying or Selling a Property

Buying a Property
Buying a property may be one of the biggest decisions you and your family will make in a lifetime. Paying an extra $10,000 for a property may not seem too much in the heat of negotiations but that $10,000 can balloon to $56,000 over a 20 year term @ 9%p.a. Getting independent valuation advice prior to purchase can save you thousands in the future. Whilst not Structural Surveyors, Registered Valuers are trained to highlight potential problems within the building, on the title or within the district plan. Remember, prevention is better than a cure.
Selling a Property
You only get one chance to sell a property. Listing too low costs you money, listing too high costs you time, which can also cost you money. Everyone is keen to give you property advice when it comes to selling your home. Agents are experts at selling property but commission selling puts them in a biased position. A Registered Valuer is totally independent and the fee charged is not dependant on the value of the property. You can pay thousands of dollars in commissions, why not pay a few hundred dollars getting professional and independent property advice.


Insurance Valuations
Inflation and increases in building costs can cause your present cover to be inadequate. Are you covered? Experience has shown that the effects of inflation and changing building costs can cause reinstatement estimates to date significantly. In the event of a total loss you would expect to be able to rebuild. Inadequate cover at the time of a loss can put you in a very awkward position. We provide Insurance Certificates accepted by all brokers and insurance companies.


Leases are not public information and finding comparable evidence can be difficult at negotiation time.

In general, the residential property market within the greater Ruapehu and King Country regions continues in an upward direction with demand generally outstripping supply. Noticeable trends include multiple offers being a common occurrence, increasing demand for ‘doer-uppers’, increasing demand for vacant sections despite cost often outweighing end value and continued increasing demand from out of town purchasers. Interestingly, since June 2016, the median house price has increased in all four centres, with Te Kuiti increasing some 19.3%, Otorohanga 30.6%, Ohakune 34.7% and Taumarunui 35%.

As a Farm Consultant working in the King Country I have provided instructions to Doyle valuations on a number of occasions. I have been impressed with the quality of the service received with valuations provided promptly and demonstrating up to date knowledge of the market. I have no hesitation in recommending Doyle Valuations for rural property valuations.
