There are many careers in property. To become a registered valuer you need to choose particular courses or programmes as well as fulfil some other requirements.
A valuer is a respected professional career, providing a very structured career path. You will be able to demonstrate your competency in a very clear way as you gain more experience.
The role of a valuer is to inspect land, buildings (and improvements), plant and machinery in order to develop an estimate of what the item is worth in the current marketplace. Those using the services of registered valuers include those looking to lend against a property or sell or buy property.
Registered valuers are often seen as experts in the property market and called upon for their advice in perhaps legal or by investors for portfolio advice.
To become a registered valuer you need to gain in-depth knowledge of property construction, history, and develop knowledge of relevant data sources. Valuers look at things like local sales, history and the current marketplace for property as well as assessing the condition, age materials, construction and location to develop an official property value.
At Massey University you will study the Bachelor of Business (Property).
You are now a registered valuer!
You can develop your career further with professional qualifications such as becoming a Senior Member of the Property Institute (SPINZ), an Associate of the New Zealand Institute of Valuers (ANZIV), and/or becoming a Member of the Royal Institute of Surveyors (MRICS), if you wish.
