If you’ve made the decision to sell your home, then you’ll need a house valuation. You may be feeling quite nervous about your house valuation appointment, but there is really no need. Here at Letters Group, we complete hundreds of home valuations in Peterborough every year. We have put together a few pointers to help you prepare for your house and feel more relaxed about the whole experience.
- Get Questions Ready
While you may have heard it before, there really is no such thing as a silly question. If you have any questions that you would like to ask the estate agent, write them down. We want to make sure you don’t have any worries and will be happy to answer any questions you have. These could be simple questions about house viewings, or changing the home in small ways to add value. You can always ask any follow up questions if you have thought of something after the property valuation.
- Keep The Time Free
Your house valuation is a really important part of the house selling process. It’s your chance to get to know the estate agent and decide if you are happy for them to sell your home for you. The average house valuation will take around an hour. However, this is dependent on the size of your home and any questions you might have. Block the time out of your diary to ensure you get to ask all the questions you want, and you can get a real feel for the estate agent too.
- The House Valuation Is Important
You may have looked at neighbours’ homes or similar houses and seen how much they have sold for, but it is very hard to estate the value of your property. Every home is different, no matter how similar they might look. The estate agent will be able to give you the value of your home and how much you should sell it for. You can also ask them for ways you could boost the value of the home, improve the kerb appeal or sell the home quicker. Remember – our estate agents are very experienced at selling homes just like yours. Use them as much as you can to get the best price for your home.
