Ever wondered why property valuation plays a crucial role in the HDB resale market? Whether you’re a seller aiming for maximum profit or a buyer seeking the best deal, understanding your home’s value is key. But property values aren’t static – they fluctuate with the market. So, how do you stay on top of these changes and ensure you’re always in the know?

First, what is property valuation in Singapore?

A property valuation in Singapore refers to a professional assessment of a property’s estimated market value. This estimation serves as a crucial reference point for both buyers and sellers when negotiating the selling price of a property, such as an HDB flat.

What factors determine a property valuation?

1. Location

Your property’s location is one of the most significant factors. Properties in prime locations or areas with high demand typically have higher values. Proximity to amenities such as schools, transportation, shopping centres, and recreational facilities can positively impact your property’s valuation.

2. Property Type

The type of property you own, whether it is an HDB flat, private condominium, landed property, or commercial property, influences its value. Each property type has its own market trends and demand levels, affecting the overall valuation. 

3. Size and Layout

The size and layout of your property play a significant role in determining its value. Larger properties with efficient layouts are often valued higher. Usable space, number of rooms, and overall design contribute to the assessment. 

4. Condition and Age

The condition and age of your property are important considerations. Well-maintained and newer properties generally have higher valuations. Renovations and upgrades can positively impact the value, while properties requiring significant repairs may be valued lower. 

5. Market Conditions

Current market conditions, including supply and demand dynamics, interest rates, and economic factors, influence property valuations. Understanding these trends can help you gauge the right time to buy or sell your property. 

6. Comparable Sales

Valuers often look at recent sales of similar properties in your area to determine a fair market value. Comparing these properties helps in providing an accurate and realistic valuation.

How to get a property valuation report for HDB and condo?

For HDB flats

Once the seller has granted the Option to Purchase (OTP) to the buyer, he/she can then submit a Request for Value to HDB on the HDB Resale Portal. This will be conducted by HDB’s Panel of Valuers. Within a few working days, the property valuation report will be available on the HDB Resale Portal. It will be available for 3 months, to ensure the property is sold within this period.

If you’re the seller, you won’t have to pay any fees for the HDB valuation.

If you’re the buyer, you will be prompted to pay a fee of under $200 during the application process of the Request for Value.

For condo units

If you’re the buyer, and you apply for mortgage or refinancing, the bank you choose will provide a valuer to inspect the property and provide a property valuation report. You will have to pay about $400 to $800; it will be included in the loan processing fees.

The valuers from HDB or banks in Singapore must be part of the Singapore Institute of Surveyors and Valuers (SISV). (They typically are, but it wouldn’t hurt to double confirm.)

Can I get a property valuation report before listing my property for sale?

Before you even think about listing your HDB flat for sale, it is actually crucial to understand its current market value. This is where HomerAI, your next-generation Home Ownership & e-Valuation Report AI tool, steps in.

What is HomerAI?

HomerAI is designed by Ohmyhome to provide homeowners with valuable insights, including a comprehensive home valuation. By analysing past transactions of similar properties in your area, HomerAI can estimate your HDB’s worth, giving you a realistic idea of your potential selling price.

What can you learn about your property with HomerAI? 

Property valuation 

With HomerAI, you get an accurate and comprehensive valuation of your property compared to others in the market, like SRX’s X-Value Home Report, EdgeProp Edge Fair Value, PropertyGuru Property Valuation Tool, and 99.co’s Property Value Tool. While those other tools mainly rely on past transaction data, HomerAI goes the extra mile by integrating current market data, including the latest listing prices. 

This real-time information allows HomerAI to provide you with a more up-to-date and accurate valuation, reflecting the ever-changing dynamics of the property market. By incorporating both historical and current data, HomerAI delivers a holistic view of a property’s value, ensuring that you have the most accurate information at your fingertips. This comprehensive approach gives you a significant advantage when making informed decisions about selling (or buying) property. 

So for HDB sellers, you don’t have to wait until your buyer requests a valuation for your HDB listing. And same goes with condo sellers too!

Property transaction data in the last 6 months 

HomerAI also compiles transaction data from the past 6 months for properties similar to yours in your neighbourhood. This includes the lowest, highest, and average transacted prices, giving you a clear picture of the price trends in your area. You’ll also get a detailed breakdown of all sold transactions, even pinpointing those in your specific block. This information is sorted by date, so you can see the most recent sales, which gives you a precise and realistic context for your property’s value. It ensures that you are not just looking at general neighbourhood data but at sales that closely match your own property’s location and features. 

Post listing 

With HomerAI, you can not only get an accurate valuation but also list your property for sale directly on the Ohmyhome platform at no cost. This feature gives you more control and visibility over your listing, making it easier for potential buyers to find your property. However, you can still engage Ohmyhome’s agent services if you prefer a more hands-off approach to selling your home. 

Browse exclusive listings for sale 

When searching for your next home on HomerAI, you can browse the “Find Homes” page to discover exclusive listings. These are properties managed by Ohmyhome agents and are verified through Singpass to ensure that all listings are legitimate and that the properties are accurately represented.

Save time for what matters. No need to manually scour multiple websites for transaction data; HomerAI consolidates everything in one place. 

Get accurate and up-to-date property insights in a few clicks. HomerAI provides the latest market data, ensuring your valuation is accurate and reflects current trends.

FAQs about property valuation in Singapore

Why do we need to do property valuation? 

Getting a property valuation report is essential for both buyers and sellers. As a seller, it helps you determine a fair and competitive asking price for your property. As a buyer, it helps you understand the market value of a property and negotiate a fair deal. 

How often do we need to check property valuation? 

The frequency of checking your property valuation depends on your needs. If you’re actively looking to buy or sell a property, it’s recommended to check valuations every few months or even more frequently in a volatile market. However, even if you’re not actively transacting, it’s a good idea to check your property valuation annually to stay updated on the market. 

Who can conduct a property valuation? 

Only licensed appraisers who are members of the Singapore Institute of Surveyors and Valuers (SISV) can conduct official property valuations. For HDB flats, you can obtain an official valuation from the Housing & Development Board (HDB). 

What factors influence property valuation? 

Several factors affect property valuation, including location, size and type of property, age and condition, prevailing market conditions, and recent transaction prices of comparable properties. 

How can I get a free property valuation? 

You can use online valuation tools like Ohmyhome’s HomerAI to get a free and instant estimate of your property’s value. However, this doesn’t constitute as the official appraisal of your property. HDB will send a valuer from its Panel of Valuers and banks will also send a valuer from the firms they work with to provide you with an official property valuation report you need to sell/buy property.
