Property is one of the biggest assets people own, so understanding the value of it is important. You might be buying or selling a property, looking for ways to add more value to your property, transferring your property to a trust, needing insurance, thinking about investment properties, negotiating a lease, or need reporting on asset values.
Whatever your property type, we can provide you with a market valuation. It’ll give you peace of mind and confidence on what your property’s value is in today’s property market. As one of the largest providers, you’ll receive a quick and comprehensive onsite assessment and report completed by one of our registered valuers that’ll include local insight and information to help with your property decision.
Alternatively you can call 0800 16 44 44 for more information.
What can a QV market valuation do for me?
Unlock your property's potential
What can you do that will have the most impact on your how much your property is worth? Perhaps sub-division potential, creating more outdoor living, landscaping, or an updated bathroom - QV can help you with these decisions
Highlight title issues
Check the title of your property, particularly cross-leased properties, to highlight any issues.
Minimise the risk of surprises
Highlight any issues around the property and what’s happening in the area - it’s great to be aware that next door or down the road they are building a new through road, childcare centre or shopping complex. Get advice on the area’s zoning to minimise the risk of surprises e.g. a light commercial or industrial business springing up next door.
Access to local, experienced, registered valuers insight and advice
What’s happening next door, down the street, and in the suburbs across town? Which houses are seen as desirable in your area, and where your property fits in the market? What kind of movement is going on in the local property market and how does it compare to six months ago?

What if I’m building a new house or adding to an existing house?
If you’re building new or adding to a house, a construction valuation is used. This provides you with a market value prior to the house being built or work being started and valuation after the work has been completed
During the process, progress reports are completed to allow the release of finance to complete the build.
What’s in a Construction Valuation report?
To begin with, a comprehensive report containing the market value of the property today and on completion of works, and what and how much has been completed.
If your bank requires regular updates on the progress to release funds to continue with the construction, your QV valuer will provide this. At the completion of the build you’ll receive a final completed value, if required by your bank.
Your rating valuation is reviewed every three years by your local council or a service provider such as QV. There is a period where you can object to your rating valuation. Find out more on rating valuations.
