What you need to know about bank valuations

By Cindy Cash

It’s important to understand why banks and lenders need to undertake a valuation when you’re purchasing a property.  Often times a bank valuation is required to make sure the home loan you’re applying for is not of a greater value than the value of the property you’re planning to buy.

For the same reasons, a bank valuation is also needed if you’re planning to refinance your existing home loan.

A bank valuation is used to determine how much a person can responsibly borrow and if one is needed, a mortgage broker can usually order it on your behalf.  It’s important to make sure the bank valuation has been completed as soon as possible because it can play a role in the approval of your home loan application.

The good news is that when you work with a mortgage broker the process can be quick and run smoothly because they know exactly what to do. Martin Beanland is a Loan Market mortgage broker and a partner of Ray White Windsor.
