Sally comes from a family that is passionate about property as she is the daughter of Vonnie Spargo and sister of Guy Spargo who owned Spargo Properties, so it’s in her blood.

Free Property Online Valuation

Free Property Online Valuation

Obtaining a property valuation is an essential step when thinking of selling but for other purposes too such as estate planning, insurance purposes and to keep up with your asset values.  So even if your move is not imminent, a house valuation still proves an excellent tool for indicating current market value, and possible room for improvements to increase the value of your home.

An online house valuation is a useful tool to get a quick and easy estimate of the actual price of your property.

By answering a few easy questions on the current condition of your home in Newlands, our complimentary property value calculator, using the latest GIS (Geographical Information System) will provide you with an indication of how much money you could potentially make from the sale of your home if you are intending to sell or for the other purposes indicated above.

A feature unique to Valuator provides references to recent final property sales in selected Cape Town Metropolitan Areas, which have yet to be recorded in the Deeds Office. This value added feature ensures that our reports are reliable and up-to-date.

*HOMEimage is not an estate agency and offers specialised marketing solutions to property developers, hospitality industry, private property sellers and agents, such as 3D models, floor plans, virtual tours, professional photography, drone aerial photography, property marketing materials, and project management.

Buying or selling a home as well as moving, can be one of the most stressful experiences in your life, even more so if you are not properly informed, and it is probably one of the most important investments you will make. You need to understand your rights and obligations and learn to take control of the process.

Property and its wealth creating power is not an exact science, but a very complex industry, in which most of us share an interest. Property Power is designed to empower home buyers, home sellers, first-time property investors and owner-builders/renovators with knowledge regarding important aspects of purchasing and selling immovable residential property.

Too many people run into financial difficulty and have to live with disappointments after making hasty decisions and not taking control of their property transactions. Property Power is a magazine (including an interactive PC CD-Rom) in which we cover the most important facts with regard to property transactions as comprehensively as possible, while keeping it simple, user-friendly and easy to read.

If you missed out on the previous editions, don’t despair. Each year, after the Minister of Finance announces the new Budget, we update Property Power and release a new edition. Everything discussed in the previous edition is simply revised and modified to the latest developments, figures and legislation in the market and newly researched material is added.

Updated Information
Property Power is updated and published regularly. You can visit our website at any time to make sure that you have the latest edition and that you are not missing out on any new information, like amendments to certain acts, or changes in the interest rate, budget speech, and so on. We endeavor to update Property Power at least once a year, however sometimes an edition may be relevant for two years.
