18. On some internet web sites, I can type in my basic house details and get the value of my house, why do I need to pay for a Registered Valuer?

  • Beware of these cheap instant "Valuation" sites. They are predominantly based on "information rich, knowledge poor" statistical data techniques and are in no way associated with formal valuations conducted by Registered Valuers.  Additionally, within a couple of days, you are contacted by a Real Estate Agent offering a Market Appraisal.  Your data has been "on-sold" as your contact details are mandatory fields to obtain the "cheap valuation".  As they say "There are no such things as free lunches!"
