Your Guide To Moving Home | Step 2: The Valuations

News at Newton Fallowell | 07/11/2016


Moving home can be a confusing and complicated time, especially if you’ve never moved before, and so we’ve created an eight step guide to moving home in order to help you understand the different steps you will need to undertake before you move house.

The second step to commence moving home are valuations.

At the valuation we will come prepared with comparable properties both from the land registry and from our own database and recently sold and available properties to help us to accuratelyadvice you on the best price for your property.

We can give you a guide price as to what price it would need to be to sell in the timescales that you need. We will then discuss all our marketing, how we will promote your property and the unique services you will benefit from if you chose us to market your home.

Once all of the valuations have been carried out and you have all of the follow up letters back it is time for you to choose your estate agent. It would not be unusual to be looking at three different marketing prices and three different levels from the agents.

Be careful not to choose your agent because they have given you the highest marketing price. Getting the price right is crucial in generating the right level of interest early on. The wrong marketing price can seriously affect the changes of selling your home. Too high and your home may not attract enough interest and stagnate on the market, too low and you will attract people who are unable to pay the price you actually want.

It is also important not to choose the cheapest agent. The old saying you get what you pay for is very true. Many agents will sell your house for a small fee and they can afford to do this because they cut corners when it comes to marketing.

We employ some of the best negotiators in the industry who will make sure you achieve the highest price possible for your home. Choose your agent on value for money and the services they offer as well as their track record and experience of selling homes like yours.
