How to value your home – steps to take
Anyone who is contemplating selling their house or flat should first obtain a solid estimate of the price the property might be able to attract. If you’re interested in doing your own work to assess your home’s value, it’ll require some time and effort but is entirely feasible.
Top three questions we’re asked about valuing your home
We speak with many homeowners on a daily basis, and when they ask us about doing their own valuation for their house or flat these are three questions we hear frequently:
✅ Should I do my own valuation or get a professional to do it?
It’s entirely your decision and whatever you’re most comfortable with. A professional can take all the stress out of a valuation because they’ll handle the whole process. But many homeowners have successfully done their own accurate valuations, so if you want to do so just remember it might require quite a lot of time and hard work.
✅ If I have renovated my home since buying it should I add that to the valuation?
Definitely. If you have had done any improvement work on the house, such as adding a bedroom or renovating the kitchen or the bathroom, you should account for this in your valuation. Such work can significantly increase the value of your home, and the upgrades also make a property more attractive to potential buyers.
✅ Can I trust an online valuation instead of doing one myself?
No. Property websites that have tools for you to generate a very quick estimate of your home’s value should only be used as a general guideline for your home’s value. These tools cannot replace the in-depth review of a home that you can do on your own, and some of them use data that is old and therefore not accurate for valuations.
