Providers of the most comprehensive and trusted land and property information in New Zealand, and of specialist GIS, imagery, and mapping solutions worldwide.
Terralink International's Property Guru backs up the extensive knowledge of property valuer Roger Ganley and his team at Eyles McGough in Auckland and sees their clients return.
Roger Ganley's clients are savvy when it comes to property. Many of them own multiple properties and are experienced investors. They range from commercial landlords and councils who need a rent review, to banks after a mortgage valuation, and individuals who need a sale and purchase valuation.
Roger says the challenge for him and his team is staying on top of property market trends.
"There's a lot of property information out there which anyone can access. Most of our clients regularly look at property websites, read the business pages, and discuss property opportunities with their knowledgeable colleagues and friends. They're pretty clued up so it's up to us to fill in the gaps in their knowledge and give them an accurate fair valuation that reflects exactly where the property market is. We need to stay one step ahead," he says.
Roger says Terralink's Property Guru provides his team with the most up-to-date inside information available.
"Property Guru is the ultimate property information tool for us because it backs up our knowledge and fills in the gaps on properties where we may have less experience.
When you're valuing a property you need to consider the full picture and have an understanding of where the property fits within the larger local area. Property Guru gives me the complete sales history of the property I'm valuing and I can compare it to other similar properties in the area and check how much they sold for and when they last sold.
"Using the radius search I can define the area I want to research, and then I can refine those properties down to those of a similar age and size. Then we know we are comparing apples with apples.
"I can be confident Property Guru's data is current and the valuation I'm preparing will be accurate and fair," he says.
Mr Ganley says clients rely on valuers like him to provide a non-biased assessment of a property's worth independent of any real estate professional, property buyer or seller.
"A lot of our business comes to us via word of mouth. Clients and former clients recommend us because they know we provide them with an unbiased, independent valuation. Property Guru helps us provide that level of service and our reputation keeps our clients coming through our door.
"We can be confident our clients are receiving the best service and expertise available," Roger says.
