Using the Property Value Report Calculator

To use the property value calculator, simply enter the original value of the property, indicate the average appreciation percentage rate for your suburb/city, then enter the appreciation period.

Factors that Impact the Value of a Property

Whether you are planning to buy an investment property or a home to live in, it's important to understand the different factors that can affect a property’s value, even more so if you are planning on selling it later.

Below are some factors that can affect the value of a property:

Location of the property

One of the biggest and most important factors is the location. If a property is close to a CBD, has easy access to important landmarks such as shopping centers, hospitals and schools, they are often more expensive compared to properties located further away.

Size and features

The size of the property, how many bedrooms and bathrooms there are, and how big the land is are all factors that are likely to affect the value of a property. Many homeowners who are planning to sell their property often undertake renovations first in order to maximize the growth of their home value as it tends to be more profitable.

Public Transport Access

Proximity to a public transport can also affect a property's value. Homes that are close to train stations are likely to indicate a higher property value.

Renovation Capabilities

The renovation capabilities of a property can contribute to its attractiveness and thus its value. If a house possesses room for major improvement, it gives the owner a lot of flexibility to improve its quality, which can also increase it’s value.
