A New Property Insights Solution Empowers Kiwis

A New Property Insights Solution Empowers Kiwis with More Knowledge

New Zealand’s first nationwide, Kiwi owned property insights platform is set to revolutionize the way we buy and sell houses

Valocity’s founder, Carmen Vicelich, today announced the launch of myvalocity, the first Kiwi built property valuation and insights platform delivering nationwide, innovative property data, analytics and the latest cloud based technology to Kiwi consumers.

Vicelich says that it was the success and adoption of Valocity, it’s bank solution, which led to consumers’ frequently requesting their own access to credible, highly accurate and up to date property data which drove the creation of myvalocity.

“myvalocity is revolutionising how Kiwis can access property data and free insights that will help them make informed and relevant property decisions. It’s visual, easy to use, highly accurate and up to date,” says Vicelich.

Vicelich’s passion for delivering data that is relevant to consumers, is reflected in the trusted iVal (Automated Valuation Model Report) which provides the latest estimated value of a property, all property details, sales history and comparable properties sold to understand how the value was derived.

“This platform is about empowering consumers with knowledge and enhancing the user experience by providing choice and value in the market. We’ve always said the Property Market is an Ecosystem and while the corporate site Valocity delivers valuable data to banks, valuers and brokers, we needed to allow consumers to also access this information to share the knowledge,” says Vicelich.

myvalocity was built by a highly experienced team of Kiwi property experts specifically for the New Zealand market, is completely independent, provides nationwide coverage and is proudly Kiwi owned.

The launch of myvalocity has been welcomed by the Valuer General, Neill Sullivan, who says that it “provides a user friendly mechanism to access consolidated data in a rapidly changing property landscape which in
turn promotes more informed decision making.”

It offers consumers a number of firsts including the first subscription model, whereby users can purchase multiple ‘iVals’ which provide the most accurate estimated valuation reports.

The subscription model also caters to those actively searching for property data over a set period of time, allowing for an ‘all you can search’ subscription whereby users can download unlimited reports over a selected period.

The innovation is set to continue with myvalocity giving consumers access to free data that hasn’t been available before, including the innovative Property Trend Report and a Suburban Insight Report that will benefit first home buyers and those moving to unfamiliar areas.

myvalocity has also partnered with Figure NZ, a charity devoted to getting people to use data about New Zealand, to provide a wealth of free data to Kiwis.
