Two of the Australia's largest privately owned valuation groups, WBP Property Group and MVS National Valuers, have formed a national alliance called Austwide Valuatons.

Austwide Valuations aims to set a new benchmark for valuations standards and provide greater service and coverage for each group’s clients.

WBP chief executive Greville Pabst  told AFR that the alliance was formed in response to greater demand from lenders for national valuation groups, and declining valuation service and quality from other major valuation groups. Austwide membership will be open to all valuation firms.

MVS national spokesman Jeff Keane told Property Observer that Austwide is a national initiative to improve the standard of residential real estate valuation services in Australia.

“Austwide ensures valuation products and services are compliant with lawful and regulatory guidelines, reliable and accurate and of a high professional standard,” says Keane.
