Val­u­a­tions over­load

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Auck­lan­ders have gone on­line in droves to find out how much their house has in­creased in value. But over­whelm­ing de­mand saw Auck­land Coun­cil’s cap­i­tal val­u­a­tions web­site bro­ken for most of Mon­day. The web­site had almost one mil­lion views on Novem­ber 10, coun­cil says. The site was un­able to cope with the high num­ber of peo­ple try­ing to search their ad­dress. More staff and re­sources have been put in to get the web­site back up to speed. Auck­land val­ues have jumped about a third since 2011. Some ar­eas such as Hob­sonville, For­rest Hill and Man­gere Bridge are up more than 50 per cent. Cap­i­tal val­u­a­tions, also known as rate­able val­ues or gov­ern­ment val­u­a­tion, are cal­cu­lated based on other prop­er­ties in the same area.
