1) Why do I need a property valuation?

If you are moving home, conducting a property valuation is an essential part of the process. Property valuations provide an estimate of how much your home should be worth based on several different factors, which will give you a good idea of the correct marketing price when you do decide to sell.

You can use our free online house valuation tool here.

5) Is an online property valuation accurate?

Our online home valuations are as accurate as possible, using a combination of data from different sources to provide an indication of the value of your property. To support this online property valuation, we do recommend that you meet with an independent accredited estate agent, who 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 home?

If you are thinking of selling your property in the future and want to know what might help to increase the value, here are some pointers:

  • You may be unable to 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 the garden or remove untidy trees or structures? Are there any views that can be taken advantage of, or can you make vehicle access easier?

Take a look at our article on kerb appeal and how to improve it or take a look at our blog packed full of even more tips on how to increase the value of your property.
