With so many valuation options on the high street and on the web, it can be hard to know if you’re getting the best advice.
Getting the value right can make a huge difference to your finances, as it will stop you from selling your property for less than it’s worth. Here a few things you can do to make sure you’re ready to sell and to get the best possible valuation.
Have a look at what is selling and what has sold nearby. If there are ten other houses for sale on your street, you need to make sure yours stands out. Think about the area, the time of year and any other factors which could impact your chance of selling.
Make sure your house is ready for sale. Your valuation will depend on many things, with presentation and condition being key. Ensure your home is tidy, the décor is up-to-date and its internal and external appearance are the best they can be.
Consider how quickly you need to sell and move to a new property. If you have time, consider major changes like a new bathroom or an updated kitchen, which could improve your valuation.
When it comes to your valuation, getting several opinions is a good idea. This gives you a figure to work with and uses the expertise of multiple property experts.
