Getting an Accurate Valuation on a Property

When you are considering selling a property, be it commercial or residential, you will need to begin by getting yourself an accurate valuation for it. This is easier said than done; you might be able to look up approximate values for properties in your area, but you might also not be able to find anything which is all that accurate. Property prices can change dramatically, even just within a few years, so you shouldn’t rely too much on anything you find.

Engage an estate agent to come and give you a valuation by looking at your property in the flesh. They will be able to tell you what they could sell the property for, so you can have an idea of what to expect if you put it on the market. It is usually advisable to speak to more than one estate agent, who can give you their own opinions so you can see what different agents are willing to go to.
