Why you can rely on a
Certified Practising Valuer?
When the Taxation Department, Family Court,
Government, Banks or any other body dealing with money and
assets require precise knowledge as to the value of real
estate, do they call in the real estate (commission) agent?
No, they engage a professional valuer - a Certified
Practising Valuer - someone who is able to stand up in a
Court of Law and swear on oath as to the value of the piece
of real estate in question.
A fully qualified and accredited
valuer is independent of all parties associated with a property. A
commission estate agent is never independent, as payment by
commission makes the commission estate agent dependent upon a sale
taking place, and this gives rise to a conflict of interests as
between the commission estate agent and his own client.
