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.
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.

The continued Covid-19 pandemic around the world is creating significant economic and financial global ‘headwinds’. Within New Zealand, international tourist numbers are more or less non-existent while other sectors have also felt the impact, such as forestry etc. A drop in New Zealand’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is widely expected by economists, with a “recession” now expected in the short to medium term.
The current Coronavirus (Covid-19) global outbreak is creating significant economic and financial global ‘headwinds’.
