it depends what the houses are like in the first place.
they already know what it was like when you bought it.
So appart from market appreciation try adding things like air-con, patios, new paint
to a lesser degree gardens
these things dont cost to much to do but can add alot more in percieved valueStuart WemyssMember@stuart-wemyssJoin Date: 2003Post Count: 598

please help me with a few questions, i'm a property portfolio planner in south africa for a company called Treoc.com, it is my work to see that the clients in our company purchase as many property in the clients Investment Trust as possible without getting to the point that they need to borrow money for bread and milk, i also do the finance applications that go to the bank for the hone loan.
now as everybody knows South Africa is not a nice place to stay in any more and i need to get my family out of here, are there a company that does the same kind of service as i'm doing currently here in SA?
if there is how can i contact them?
does my line of work/ service fall under Aus's skilled employment immigration?
is there companies in Aus that will sponser me/ family to immegrate to Aus?

You should speak to an agent specialising in immigration into Australia….I know that sounds obvious but get the info from the right source is my advice.BreakEvenParticipant@breakevenJoin Date: 2006Post Count: 80
In regards to the first question: I wouldn't get a bank evaluation, they have a tendency to grossly undervalue. I would get an independent valuation from a company that is on your banks list or approved valuers.
Years ago I had a bank valuation that was 25% LESS than the independant valuation.
