In a recent survey conducted by Move with Us 80% of home movers preferred to receive an online valuation at the start of the process.

With the internet the first port of call for most consumer items, home movers are looking to this openly accessible resource for an indication into the value of their home. Although online valuation tools do give an indication into the value of a home, they are not 100% accurate. Online valuations should be supported by a full market appraisal from a recommended estate agent. The estate agent will be able to assess all the unique characteristics of the property, before giving an accurate selling figure for the current market.

What an online valuation does give is instant gratification, and will help to give an idea on your moving ability from the comfort of your own home.

Benefits of an online valuation include:

  • Quick and easy price of your home
  • Idea into your moving ability
  • Comparison with other houses on the market
  • Useful information to take to an estate agent

We strongly recommend that you do use your online valuation in conjunction with a full market appraisal from an independent estate agent. You will then know your current selling position and whether you wish to proceed with marketing your home.
