Selling your home can be a daunting experience.

It is most people’s largest asset, and ensuring you get the best possible price with the least amount of stress is every clients aim. We provide pre sale valuation advice to a wide variety of clients, and provide professional and completely independant pre sale valuation reports to help you understand the value of your property.

Clients contact us usually either prior to having real estate agents come out to the property so that they have our independent opinion to help them determine if the agents are being honest or not, or otherwise clients have a number of agents out to the property, and are then given a wide range of figures by the agents. In this situation it can be very hard to tell which, if any of the agents is correct, and having someone who is completely independent of the sale process come out is very helpful.

A pre sale valuation of your property starts with an appointment to come out and undertake an inspection of your property. Next, we come out for the actual inspection, which takes around 30 minutes for the average property, At the inspection we will measure up all the improvements, take photos and extensive notes as the the condition, layout and features of the property.

At the inspection we can also answer any questions you may have about the valuation process, the current state of the property market, or maybe any suggested improvements to your property before it is placed on the market. We can also provide you with an “on completion” valuation of the property if you are considering improvements to the property prior to selling it. In this situation you can advise us as to the improvements you will be undertaking, and we can incorporate these in our valuation assessment.

Once the inspection has been completed, the valuer will assess your property, investigate and analyse recent comparable sale of similar properties in the immediate area and ultimately determine a figure that they think the property can be sold for in the current market within a reasonable time frame (usually 90 days).

The valuation report will be sent out to you two days after the inspection, and you have the ability to contact the valuer directly if you have any further questions in regards to your property or the valuation of it. Many clients find a pre sale valuation very helpful, and have a lack of trust in real estate agents providing honest and accurate advice.

If you have any further questions in regards to a pre sale valuation feel free to contact us where you can speak directly to a valuer and discuss your situation, and how we can help you.
