House valuation

Having your house valued is an extremely important stage of selling your house. An over-valued property can sit on the market for a long time and often won’t sell without the price being dropped. An undervalued property will sell quickly but also lose you lots of money. An accurate valuation will help your property to sell and at a good price.

There are lots of things you can do to prepare for a house valuation. The main things are:

  • Make sure it is clean and tidy
  • Get rid of any clutter
  • Make sure there are no bad smells
  • Neutralise any bright colour choices
  • Make sure any dark rooms or corners are correctly lit
  • Be prepared for questions about your house. Your estate agent will help you to prepare for this
