    Hi there,

    We’re planning to render the front of the property and also redo the entire landscaping.

    For a single storey property, how much does it roughly cost to engage a licensed property valuer to do a valuation?

    It would be good to understand the value add from the project.

    Thanks, John

    I don't know about the value add is but I did it to my PPOR and I tell you what the difference has been amazing looks completely different lots of people have commented. Street appeal is important

    Anywhere from $300 to $500 I'd guess.

    Which lender are you with? Might be able to have them provide a free valuation

    Cheers

    Jamie

    Street appeal, the first seven seconds or love at first sight ?

    What colour are you rendering? Super popular is the grey/charcoal black spectrum.
    Presuming one of those colours silver plants look good along with a formal low hedge, avoiding too many different colours.

    Thanks people. re.com.au probably based this on statistics around my area. It won't be able to tell price increase before and after the works. i'm not looking to sell at this stage, but $300 looks like a lot to satisfy my own curiosity, i'll see if the other free alternatives eg. estate agents work out. i'll share the details if this eventuates.

    You have to compare your place to the others that have sold recently and you'll find where yours sits. Then look for the ones that are neater, with a new facade etc.
    Eg bog stock 3x1 400k
    Tarted up 3x1 430k
