What is my house worth: Property Price versus Market Value

If you are wondering “what is my house worth” then know that it all starts with this question.  Determining the resale value of your home is one of the first and most important steps when it comes to selling.  First though before you can get to the property price, the market value must be established.  We unpack all the terminology associated with a free property valuation, here.

The market value is the value that the property is worth when you compare your property to those properties in close proximity to your home.  These properties should also be similar in size.  This is actually the price that your property should sell for once it goes onto the market.  When you understand the market value this will assist you to set the property price.

The main contributing factors that determine a property price:

  1. Location – what is my property worth is driven largely by the location of your property.  Some suburbs are simply in greater demand than others.  Some locations are simply better than others.
  2. Amenities – close proximity to popular amenities will impact the property price.
  3. Condition of the neighbourhood – which is not a seller has control over. But, do you remember the saying “do you own the worst house in the best area”?  This is a key factor that determines a property price.
  4. Condition of your property – a clean and well-maintained property will provide potential buyers with a good first impression. And the condition of your property plays a big role in determining your property price.
  5. Age and layout of your property – anything that is noted on the property valuation as a negative will work against the property price that is being determined. In addition, the perception of ‘work that is needed’ often adds cost for a buyer and may drop your property value.
  6. Market trends – understand the market we find ourselves in. Currently, in SA and for the foreseeable future, we are in a buyer’s market.  This means there are more homes on the market than there are buyers.  Finally, a popular neighbourhood with good schools and popular amenities will be in higher demand and may therefore also have a higher property price.
