Want to improve your opportunities to increase property sales? PropertyCompass® offers two significant industry-first solutions to help you do just that!

In this release:

  1. Property Compass® expands on the Networking and sale generation capabilities of the platform by introducing the concept of ‘Graded Properties’. Request an independent grade and report (IPR) on any listed property.
  2. Upload property lists to registered external sites

 

1. Grading a property | industry-first solution

Graded is a smart, new concept in the world of real estate.

An Independent Property Review (IPR) is the ideal report for astute buyers and proactive sellers.

Compiled independently by leading property experts at Propell National Valuers Pty Ltd, an Independent Property Review (IPR) includes expert commentary on a property and provides a score and grade for quick and easy property comparisons and accurate due diligence.

 

The grade works like a hotel star rating. It provides the disclosure buyers/ advisers need to find the right property.

 iprGrades-PropertyCompass

Acting as an independent property rating system, the property grade allows you to evaluate individual properties based on historical growth rate, price risk, demographics, internal floor plan flow, street scape/traffic flow, parking and outdoor space; so you can evaluate and compare properties most suited to you quickly and easily.

 

How it works

  • Members of a Property List can request a property be graded
  • The Lister is notified of the request and can view all requests when managing the listing
  • The Lister may Order at any time an Independent Property Review (IPR) and choose to publish the results
  • The Grade and Score are extracted from the IPR results are made visible in the Property List
  • Members that have requested a property be graded will automatically be notified when the results are published
  • Members of a Property List can now view and search for Graded Properties

For more information view the IPR product page/ website

 

2. Upload property lists to registered external sites industry-first solution

Property Compass® becomes even more useful when you can integrate external websites and platforms with your data and activity. Property Compass® can be set up to automatically upload data to external servers. This is useful if you want to use your Property Compass data:

  • On your own website/ app or
  • Your business partner website/ app

This  industry-first solution make it effortless to integrate your listed and aggregated properties onto several portals / apps; with live property status updates. Additional flexibility allows a listing to be placed in multiple lists; thus publishing your selected lists to several sites anywhere in the world.

Dear All

As we have previously announced the PropertyCompass® application is being rebuilt module by module; our newest module is: Projects (please see summary below)

Projects:
Commonly projects are used for developments and apartment blocks to group listings together for easier management.

Projects are optional and generally should be used to group common listings together.

We have found that most advertising platforms do not have great support for Project based listings. We are working together with these platforms to improve that support. In the mean time, Project information is not sent to the advertising platforms.

Analyse a postcode at the touch of a button

There is a lot to consider when deciding whether a property is right for you. Perhaps one of the most important considerations is the area you choose to buy in. As the saying goes, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

Get it right and you are laughing all the way to the bank. Get it wrong and it may have disastrous consequences on your long-term capital growth and rental return.

 

See if an area is growing at a glance

When it comes to choosing a suburb to buy in there are two key factors you ought to consider – population growth and capital growth.

With house prices driven by demand, the population of an area can have dramatic impact on its capital growth, resale value and rental demand.

To help you analyse this properly your free* Historical Growth Research not only shows you the population of a postcode, but the percentage change so you can see at a glance if people are moving to or leaving an area.

A fact that could save or make you thousands!

But it doesn’t stop there. Your free Historical Growth Research shows you the capital growth and decline of a postcode over the same historical-data period.

 

View by performance, map or report

Whether you want to evaluate the postcode of a shortlisted property or you are trying to find the next investment ‘hot spot’ the free Historical Growth Research can help.

Giving you the ability to view on map or search by postcode, state, population growth and capital growth, whilst presenting the information in an easy to read graph and table layout, your free Historical Growth Research can quickly give you the information you need to make smarter financial decisions.

 

Quick and easy due diligence

A word of caution: future predictions cannot be determined by past performance for any asset class. However, not doing any analysing on a postcode’s past capital growth and population prior to selecting an area / property may result with disastrous consequence.

Free Historical Growth Research can help with your due diligence and alert you to any potential factors that may need to be followed up with an Independent Property Review

 

Accurate information from reliable data sources

In order to provide you with the most accurate information, all population data is soured from the Australian Bureau of Statistics with historical property data supplied by Residex.

What’s more the free Historical Growth Research provides information from 2001 to present, a data period of over 14 years in order to take into account property market fluctuations.

 

A powerful selling tool

Looking for a different way to pitch your property? Want to stand out from the hundreds of other sellers and developers?

Perform free Historical Growth Research on the postcode your property or development is located in and add a copy to your sales kit. You might just find the summary gives you extra leverage in selling your property!

 

Did we mention it was free?

Your free Historical Growth Research is just the click of a button away. Give it a go today and make your property due diligence quick and easy.

Independent Property Rewiew (ipr)

Click here to view Product Page; View details below

Rate: $500 +GST per ipr

 

Independent Property Review  (ipr): An ipr report provides a grade and independent commentary on properties available for sale. 

ipr: is powered by Propdata and compiled by Propell National Valuers Pty Ltd.

The review provides independent commentary on real estate properties available for sale. It considers the actual property and the historical data, based on property type, postcode, suburb and local government area.

Property specific: An ipr involves assigning a grade and independent information to each property. The review is property specific and considers the following property attributes:

  • Estimated construction completion date
  • Property type
  • Listed price
  • Bedrooms
  • Bathrooms
  • Cars spaces/garages
  • Property size
  • Floor plan layout
  • Property location

Content: The ipr report includes eight sections with the following content.

1. Property grade Refer to What is graded?
2. Property observations Independent information, related to each individual property. This is an individualised service. It is not system auto-generated.
3. Neighbourhood
4. Location
5. Marketability
6. Rentability
7. Environmental issues
8. Supporting data Historical property and area data

 

Valid period: The ipr is valid for three months from the date of issue. You can order an ipr for almost (check with us for coverage) any Australian property. Click here to view sample

 

What is Graded?

Graded is a smart, new concept in the world of real estate.

The objective of this unique approach is to create a level playing field when comparing properties, and to screen out potential biased information and marketing hype that may cloud good decision-making.

The grade is built using proprietary-algorithms and been developed in collaboration with Propell National Valuers and Landlord Central. This is an individualised service not a system auto-generated product. This means years of real estate knowledge and professional experience form part of the service delivery.

Being a national-service, by design; each property across Australia is assessed via the same standard and offers buyers several benefits:

  • save time;
  • save money; and more so
  • provides unbiased disclosure on a property.

Property attributes are assessed and scored to determine a grade, please see below for details.

 

Score

A score is a number assigned to a property. It’s established by assessing a property against pre-determined attributes. The attributes include: historical growth rate; price risk; demographics; internal floor plan flow; street scape and traffic flow; parking; and, outdoor space.

Each attribute has an associated weighting. Each attribute is scored between Poor (low score) and Excellent (high score). This also determines placement of the tick. Higher scores are more favorable. The sum of the scores for all of the attributes is the total property score.

The total points scored are categorised to determine the ‘grade’ of the property.

ipr-score

 

 

Grades

ipr-grades

A grade represents a range of scores. There are five grade categories: AA; A; B; C; and D. The total points scored determines into which grade the property fits.

Since the score of a property is the accumulation of seven attributes; a grade therefore does not indicate a good or bad purchase. It simply shows how the property performs against all seven attributes.

Which grade is best for me? It all depends on what YOU are looking for! One attribute could be more important to you than the others. It is recommended you look at the individual property attributes to determine which attributes contributed to the overall score.

Example 1: an ‘AA’ Grade property will have scored highly on all attributes.

Example 2: you may be predominately interested in the ‘Price Risk’ attribute. In this example, although a property may be assigned with a ‘D’ grade, this property may in fact suit your needs, as it has scored well in the ‘Price Risk’ attribute. This is shown by a tick under excellent in this attribute.

Please see image for Example 2, below

In essence a ‘D’ grade property is highly worth considering!

The grade assists when conducting a general property search. When you search for a property ALL of the attributes are displayed with a tick. This allows you to review all the attributes against your personal needs.
