How to get an accurate house valuation

23rd October 2019


Whether you want to move, check you’re paying a fair price, or are just curious to see how much your house is worth, our tips will help you get a quick and accurate house valuation.

Research local house valuations

When you’re at the beginning of the house selling or buying process, one of the best ways to get an idea of what property is worth in the area is to conduct a little research. Estate agent websites are a good place to start as they are local property experts and should have a good selection of homes for you to browse. It’s also worth taking a walk through the high street and peering in estate agent windows to give you an idea of what local property prices are doing. If you’re moving to a new location, this also has the added bonus of helping you get to know the area.

Use a free online valuation tool

There are lots of websites available online that will provide you with a free house valuation. They will give you a rough guide price to start with, and for a more accurate picture, use the Land Registry sold prices. Many of the online valuation tools also let you check how much properties have previously sold for, giving you valuable insight into how well a particular area is performing.

Book an estate agent for a house valuation

To get an accurate house valuation, ask a trusted estate agent to visit your home to get their professional opinion on a guide price. As a local estate agent only deals with property in the area, they are experts in understanding the districts’ property market. They will therefore be able to give you the most realistic price for your home.
