The property market comprises a large cross section of property. It is important to note that property behaves differently across it’s many segments. This is also true for different localities due to local factors such as mining. Some areas may perform well, however due to a closing of a factory or poor crop yields, a locality may be experiencing a reduction in prices. This is when engaging a Valuer can be of great assistance as Valuers are trained to investigate local and national economic factors affecting different styles of property.

As often noted in the media, we see blanket headlines of “property bubbles” or “prices surge”. The question is how are the individual segments behaving?

This is an opportunity for eighty8valuers to assist. We understand that property is  diverse. We have the skills and knowledge to dissect the property market into small areas such as residential, commercial, industrial, rural farming and rural lifestyle. People trade different styles of property with different goals in mind. These can be emotional, economic or forced due to a change in circumstances etc. How Can We Assist?
