Valuation FAQs Back to top

1.) Why do I need a valuation?

If you’re moving home, conducting a property valuation is an essential part of the process. Valuations give you an estimate of how much your house should be worth based upon a number of different factors, giving you a good idea of the correct marketing price when you decide to sell.

3.) Why use an online tool?

An online house valuation is a useful way to get a quick and easy estimate of the value of your property. Whether you’re buying, selling, investing or just interested, you can find out the estimated current market value of a property using MoveHomeFaster’s instant online valuation tool.

4.) How is the valuation calculated?

The instant valuation tool calculates valuations using an algorithm of calculations and data taken from data available in the property market held with online estate agents, surveyors, mortgage lenders and the Land Registry. It performs a search to include historical sale prices as well as current market activity to provide an average valuation for your property.

5.) Is it an accurate valuation?

It is as accurate as possible, using a combination of data from different sources to provide an indication of your property’s value. To support this valuation we do recommend that you meet with an independent accredited estate agent. They will be able to give a more accurate valuation and explain at which price they believe your house will sell in the current market.

6.) How can I increase the value of my house?

If you are looking to sell your house in the future and want to know what might help when the property is valued, here are some helpful pointers.

  • You can’t change your property’s location but you can change the house itself. Think about a renovation or extending the floor area of the house. Can you add a bathroom, bedroom or entertaining area? What about improving your indoor-outdoor flow?
  • Make sure the property is well presented. Can you tidy up the garden or remove any untidy trees or structures? Are their any views that can be taken advantage of or can you make vehicle access easier?
