Property Valuation Services

Roper & Associates offer a full-service property valuation solution covering commercial, industrial, residential, agricultural and specialised property valuations. Having the advantage of an extensive database of research, our professional valuation reports are fully motivated adding to the credibility of our opinion as well as providing reliable and valid professional property valuations.


 These include valuation reports on properties like office buildings (both urban and suburban), as well as hotels and properties like shopping centres, resorts, and the like.


These property valuations are carried out on properties where industrial operations are conducted. These include factories, manufacturing plants, warehouses, etc.


Residential valuations are the most common, and are carried out to determine the value of standalone houses, townhouses, apartments, and other residential buildings.


Our agricultural property valuation services cover projects of any size within the agricultural sector from canelands, wine, fruit, poultry and other farms to ranches and reserves.


​These valuations are utilised when the property does not fall into the other categories – like schools, churches and petrol filling stations for instance.

How We Can Add Value

We aim to alleviate the stress felt by our clients when requiring fixed property valuations. Our practice has extensive knowledge in the surveying of buildings both for the determination of market rental (in terms of SAPOA’s standard method of measurement), and for the determination of the replacement costs. We also provide surveying of buildings, surrounding works and land for the purpose of determining the Open Market Value, Depreciated Replacement Value as well as the Insurance Value. These skills have been tested in the market place on an ongoing basis by way of our motivated reports.
