Rental Appraisals

For property investors, putting up their home for rent is a good way to secure another stream of income. The problem is, most new landlords fail to understand the complexities of renting out a property and often overcharge or undercharge tenants leading to more complicated issues down the line.

This can easily be remedied through a proper appraisal of your property before offering it in the market. By doing so, you understand the true value of your property and have the ability to charge accordingly.

Read on to understand how LJ Hooker helps landlords understand how to properly appraise your land.

rental appraisal for property ownersYour Property’s True Value

Understanding your property’s true value will open up a world of opportunities as you discover your property’s potential. But, your true value is linked to a variety of things. And the true value is based on the appraisal of qualified individuals and institutions. Furthermore, this value is relative to how it is defined.

For example, your house has a capital value which is determined by the local council. If you apply for a loan, this value will have an added feature called the collateral value which the bank you borrowed money from determines. This changes your property’s true value. This then becomes even more complicated if you wish to know your market value or add insurance which either raises or devalues your property. LJ Hooker can help you appraise your property with no obligations and even help you get potential tenants. We’ve been in the business long enough to understand every individual’s unique needs.
