Property Valuation Top Tips

Your property valuation will depend on a number of factors, from the local housing market to the age

Your property valuation will depend on a number of factors, from the local housing market to the age and construction of your property. Each property requires its own assessment to accurately measure the unique characteristics that make up its value. Follow our tips below to give you the best chance to get the top valuations every time.


  1. Be there – Make sure you are at the property to meet the surveyor in person. No one understands your intentions better than you.
  2. Works schedule – If you have carried any improvements since you purchased the property, you should provide a list of all work done and make it as detailed as possible. If possible, provide “before and after photos” for any works done, taken from the same angles so the surveyor understands the scale of work.
  3. Sold pricesResearch and provide examples of similar properties nearby, sold within the last 6 months.
  4. Presentation – Clean, tidy and dress the property inside as well as any external areas. If it’s tenanted already then make sure it looks clean as a minimum.  If it’s empty, you can ensure any rubbish is tidied and the property looks its best.
  5. Realistic – Most of all, be realistic. Valuers work on facts, so the more realistic you can be with your estimations and intentions, the better the chances of the valuer agreeing and providing the required figures on the report.
