If you’re thinking about renting your home or simply want to know what your property is worth, a property appraisal is a great way to find out.
What exactly is a property appraisal?
A property appraisal is the process by which a real estate agent estimates the market value of your home based on a thorough inspection of the property. Real estate agents generally consider the following factors when determining their appraised value:
- The property’s size
- Number of bedrooms
- Fixtures and fittings
- The condition of the property
- The features of the property
- Location / local area
- Access to local amenities such as schools, shopping centres and transport
- School zone boundaries
- Recent sales data i.e., recently sold properties of similar size and condition in the same market
- Market conditions
- The time of year the property is likely to be sold
- The economic environment e.g., interest rates
It is critical to remember that a property appraisal is simply an estimate or educated guess about the potential value of your home. Appraisals have no legal standing, and many real estate agencies provide them for free.

An initial inspection of your home will be performed within the first six to eight weeks of the tenancy, followed by a four-month inspection. Your tenant will be notified by email at least seven days before the inspection. Your Property Manager will liaise with the tenants in the event there are any outstanding issues that need to be attended to.
An inspection report will be made available through the Owners Portal.
When the keys are handed over to the property, two copies of a comprehensive Property Condition Report will be provided to the tenants. They must thoroughly review the report and make any necessary changes before signing and dating one copy, which must be returned to us within 2 working days. If we do not receive your signed copy within the allotted time, the original copy held in our office will be used as a reference when conducting the final inspection and determining the bond refund at the lease’s termination.
