Can I trust online valuation websites?
Property valuation websites can give you a rough estimate of your home’s value, but you should never make any decision to sell your house or flat based solely on that estimate.
Frequently asked questions we get about online property valuation websites
We often get questions from homeowners looking to sell about whether they can trust the valuation a property website gives them. Here are our most frequent questions and answers:
✅ Should I decide to sell based solely off a valuation website?
No. Although these websites are useful for giving you a general idea of the sale price that you might be able to get for your home, you should never decide to sell using only that information. That’s because some websites make their quick estimates based on outdated facts, so they could undervalue or overvalue your property.
✅ What information do property websites ignore when making valuations?
These websites use a large collection of data on house prices and other factors about your neighbourhood in making valuations. But they are sometimes based on old and no longer accurate information. And they also can’t, and don’t, account for the value of changes you might have made to improve your home, such as a bathroom renovation.
✅ Should I trust a property website valuation or an estate agent valuation?
Although property websites can give you a general idea of your home’s value, you shouldn’t rely solely on them when deciding whether to sell your home. Getting an estate agent valuation in addition can be a great way to get a more in-depth review of the value of your house or flat that you can then compare to the website estimates.
