Importance of Valuations on your Leicester Property

Importance of Valuations on your Leicester Property

Whether you’re looking to sell your property, it is important to get an accurate and honest property valuation so you can see exactly how much you should receive.

A number of factors affect the sales valuation of your property, including prices of properties recently sold in your area and a range of things that relate to your specific property. That’s why, at Open House Leicester, we don’t offer an instant online valuation like many estate agents do – it simply wouldn’t do your house justice. Your sales valuation will be carried out in person by an experienced valuer who knows your local area well and can take a realistic view of your property.

 

You’re making the first step

Getting your property valued the first step to putting your current property on the market but possibly more importantly, you get to fully understand how much your property is worth. Without having a clear understanding of how much your property is worth or clear understanding of the local market, you will struggle to make any progress.

Once you obtain the valuation on your Leicester property, you are well on your way to acquiring a mortgage agreement on your future property and can begin to search the property market.

Understand where you stand

When an estate agent carries out a valuation of your property they will look at numerous specific factors related to the condition of the property, location and overall desirability. All these factors are then combined to produce a fair valuation.
Be honest with each agent and ask them for three figures: an optimistic top selling price, i.e. the highest price they believe your property could achieve in the prevailing market, their suggested selling price (the price they believe you should market at) and their estimated eventual selling price (the price which, in their opinion, you are likely to achieve).
As a seller, it is easy to accept lavish praise about your property and a higher valuation by a confident agent, but it is more important to receive an accurate valuation based on the current property market. Plus, a high asking price may take months or even years to sell your home.
