3 Top Tips to get the Best Valuation for your Home

Sometimes (though thankfully not often), a home will not value at the price it has sold for, causing the contract to crash or negotiations to re-open.
I’ve put together a list of the three top tips so that when the time comes, you’ll be prepared to get the best possible valuation for your home.
1. Overall Presentation: The home must be in a similar state of repair to your open houses. In other words, pristine. So after you’ve agreed to a deal and signed the contracts, don’t drop the ball and let clutter accumulate and the garden become unkempt.

2. Outdoors, Kitchen and Bathrooms: These are the high-price-tag rooms. If they’re well-presented and not dated, they’ll have a huge impact on your property valuation.

3. Recent Sales Evidence: Stay abreast of property sales in your area by attending all auctions or open houses leading up to and including the time of selling your home. Grab a brochure while at the auction to make your notes and hand this evidence to the valuer. This up-to-the-minute information could be very useful, as sites commonly used by valuers can sometimes have information that’s 3 or more months old.
