How will our estate agents value your home?
Are you thinking about selling your house? While it is possible to obtain a valuation online, it is far preferable to obtain an in-person valuation from a local estate agent.
Whether you have only moved once or several times, selling your home can be a daunting process for some. Our team at Derbyshire Properties are here to help you simplify the process and keep stress to a minimum.
But how is a house valued?
The most important factors of a property valuation are:
- Local property prices
Then there are the characteristics that are specific to you and your property, such as:
- The condition of the property
- The quality of any external work done to the property, such as landscaping and garden presentation.
- Internal components (flooring, double glazing, insulation, and finishes).
There are numerous elements that can influence the value of a home and recognising the potential of a property is one of them.
Property valuations at Derbyshire Properties will take into account all of these criteria, as well as property knowledge from our experts on how the local property market is acting at the moment. How popular is this type of property? How long do you think it will take to locate a buyer? How much do similar properties in the neighbourhood sell for?
By knowing the answers to these questions, we will be able to give you an accurate guide price for your property.
Choosing the right estate agent is also a bewildering exercise. It’s not always about who has given you the highest valuation and who will sell your home with the lowest commission. It is critical that you choose an estate agent who feels right for you, understands your expectations, has a solid understanding of the property's local area, and finally has fantastic marketing strategies, so you can be confident that your property is getting the exposure it deserves.
