How do I know how much my house is worth?

It’s natural to want to know how much your house is worth, whether you’re thinking of selling or not. Let the team at Movewise Estate Agency guide you through the process of property valuation so you know what to ask and what to look for.

What factors influence a property valuation?

The size, age, location, and condition of your property are the four main characteristics used to determine the value of a home. Along with these crucial elements, a surveyor will also assess the neighbourhood, noise, accessibility to public transportation, nearby schools, and, last but not least, the degree of crime in your neighbourhood.

Are there things I can do to increase the valuation?

There are a few simple things you can do to increase the worth of your house, even if the majority of the elements used to determine a property's value are outside of your control.

Emphasise special aspects of the character or the period. If your property has character or period elements, draw buyers' attention to them with some maintenance and care. Buyers will naturally pay greater attention to houses that have these traits. It could be necessary to clean your Victorian doorbell or paint your skirting boards.

Use neutral tones to decorate your house so you give prospective buyers a blank canvas to see the space's potential. Additionally, neutral tones can help your home look larger than it actually is by giving the impression of more light.

What should I ask when getting my property valuation?

It’s useful to ask if there are any factors that could potentially decrease the value of your home, so that you can assess if it is worth rectifying any issues for an increased valuation. It’s also worth asking your estate agent what other, similar houses in your local area have been selling for, as this can often give you a more accurate picture of what you might be able to get when you sell your house.
