What is a Virtual Appraisal?

Simply where a Qualified Real Estate Agent assists in giving you a likely value estimate without physically being present in the property. 

Why do I Need a Virtual Appraisal?

You don’t have to, an in-person Appraisal is still available to you, should you wish! Call 08 83961100 to do so now.

However, a Virtual Appraisal is convenient for a number of reasons.

  • Given Covid 19 restrictions from 2020 and beyond, the Virtual Appraisal assists in the Social Distancing required and is very much a hands-off approach. It is particularly useful if you or a family member is concerned about any health issues
  • If you are not in a hurry and want a more accurate idea than an Online Automated Valuation the Virtual Appraisal is ideal
  • If you are in a hurry, want an idea of value, and get started in Marketing, all this can be achieved virtually and contactless, very quickly and conveniently
  • You have close friends, family, or elderly relatives concerned about their health, who own a property and need your support or they do not possess the technology needed to make this happen
  • You live in the country, a remote or rural area where there’s often a lack of reliable real estate services.

How Does a Virtual Appraisal Work?

There are a number of options available to you. It is similar to calling family or friends on a video call.

  • Dial-in – chat with our experienced sales team to understand the latest performance in the market with comparable sales to get an indicative estimate on your property.
  • Choose a Walk-through using your smartphone with either Messenger, FaceTime, Zoom, Skype, or WhatsApp. This is done in real-time with a member of our team using your smartphone.
  • Social Media – use technologies such as Facebook and Instagram live, to walk-through in real-time with a member of our team

What Do I Use, to Do a Virtual Appraisal?

As this is internet-based, you’ll need good Wi-Fi, the NBN, or an Internet connection with a compatible device.

This could be a Smartphone, Mobile Phone with Working Camera, Tablet, iPad, Laptop, or another device that you can comfortably use to walk around the property with.

Then it’s a matter of choosing your Preferred Application from those listed above and informing us when you are ready.

Ensure a working copy of the Application is loaded on your device. They are free to download from the App Store or Google Play Store.

If you have not used any of these Apps previously, please test it with friends or someone who can assist you to set it up comfortably to ensure it works correctly for you.

What Do You Need From Me, to Do a Virtual Appraisal or Even a Face-to-Face Appraisal?

  • Write down ALL of your questions, whether on a writing pad or electronic device, but not the one you will use to show us around
    See also Our Questions & Answers Page
  • Locate your house or land, building or site plans as appropriate, SA Water & Council Rates Notices, and anything else you deem important
  • Note down the improvements, additions, repairs & maintenance items that you have done over time

Are you in a hurry, Just getting an update for renewing insurance, or just curious? It does not matter which it is, we’ll simply tailor our proposal to suit you and your circumstance. We treat everyone the same, ie respectfully, professionally and courteously, not just the ‘same’, same
