How should I value my home?

If you are selling your home through an estate agent, they will give you an initial valuation when keen to win the instruction. It is possible that they will over value the property in order to win the instruction. Because of this, it is always advisable to get a second valuation from an independent source.

There are a number of different ways in which you can value your property:

  1. Chartered Surveyor
  2. Automated Valuation Model
  3. Review of comparable properties

When setting your sale price it is important to be sure what you would like to include in the price, such as carpets or appliances. This will avoid unnecessary confusion later on.
