3SIXTY market review
Automated Valuation Models (AVM) are freely available online but are unreliable especially if the variance is greater than 5%. They are quick to produce and can be used as a quick guide. However, if you are wanting more reliable information about what your property is worth then a 360 degree market review provides more insight than a predictive AI (artificial intelligence) price score.

My 3SIXTY approach takes into consideration how your property is likely to perform in terms of "value" against other competing properties on the market. Right now! Whether you are an owner selling or a landlord renting your property, the reality test is what the market is prepared to pay - because it is the market that determines value! Not the bank, AI, bank valuer or the opinions of friends and family.

"The only opinion of value that matters, is the market's!"

There are professional strategies to manage value. If you are already in the market and not getting the results you had hoped for or you are preparing to go to market soon you can maximise your success by understanding how the market is likely to react to your property. Markets are competitive. If your property does not represent value people will go elsewhere. And that's not the plan.


Good decisons are based on good information
Which property
It is difficult to build enduring success based on a punt or luck in the market. People who have built real wealth in property -
  • Have a plan or strategy
  • Base their decisions on relevant market information
  • Involve property, finance and other property specialists
  • Are alert to opportunities.

Investing in property for your security & lifestyle
I meet a lot of people in my work as a property professional.  And it appears many of us are working harder and longer.  But for what? More often people are saying to me "it has got to get easier than this!" They want solutions that offer a better lifestyle, now and in the future.  And for many, owning property is an attractive solution.  Why?
Property has always been a corner stone investment for people who have become wealthy. Well chosen property will -
  • accelerate in value faster than your capacity to save. Growth can be converted to cash or retained as equity to purchase more property.
  • offer taxation benefits which allow you to keep more of your earned income.
  • As an investment, provide a regular and secure income stream.
  • give you greater control of your assets and afford you a better quality lifestyle.

However, most people do not involve a property, finance or tax professional when it comes to purchasing or investing in property. How much better for them if they had professional help and information on the best ways to structure their finance and property purchase.
