The importance of an accurate and realistic valuation

The approach taken to valuing your customers property will directly impact the effectiveness of the marketing and sale of the property. By focusing on arriving at an accurate, uninflated value for your customers home we in turn put the transaction in a strong marketing and sale position. Subsequently the sale is often quicker and less stressful.

Every factor that we believe could affect the valuation of your home is diligently researched. This will include a detailed investigation of the local market, a comparison of similar homes for sale, homes recently sold in the immediate area and Land Registry data.

The Property Valuation Appraisal report will make recommendations on what we believe the market value of the property is, detailing all evidence and information taken into consideration to determine the proposed figure.
