Frequently asked questions
An online valuation provides a rough estimate of your home’s value, based on local property sales data. During our in-person valuations, we take an in-depth look at all the factors that could affect your property’s value, as well as provide advice on how to achieve a successful sale.
Every home is unique. While an online valuation will tell you the price similar local homes have achieved, it can’t tell you exactly what your own property will be worth. For an accurate appraisal, always ask a trusted expert to visit your home.
The three main factors that could affect your home’s value are the state of the housing market, current buying trends and the location and condition of the property itself.
Some relatively simple improvements can help you achieve a higher sale price. But before you spend money on refurbishing your home, it’s advisable to get an expert opinion. Our experienced valuation specialists will be happy to advise you on how to improve market value.
You could search online for similar properties that have recently sold for an equivalent price in your neighbourhood. However, every home is different, and market conditions change, so your property’s current worth can’t always be judged in this way. Always rely on the opinion of an experienced local property expert for a truly accurate valuation.
