Lock-down - How We Can Still Value Your Property

Thinking of selling or letting?

In order to make the most of being at home, you may be thinking about the current value of your property and whether you may want to sell-up later in the year, or what you can do to maximise the value of your home. Dee Atkinson & Harrison are now flexing with the current situation and offering virtual valuations as well as our instant online valuation in order to allow you to plan for your move when free movement returns. But how do we value your property without ever setting foot in your home?

The first solution is simple – our 'online valuation tool'. Online valuation tools have become increasingly more popular as their accuracy improves, and as people become more aware that the values are a rough guide rather than a solid appraisal figure. These tools look at land registry data to ascertain the price a property was previously valued at and then use matrices in order to give you a value in today’s inflated rate. Although the estimates can vary, they do give you an idea of the value your property could obtain on the open market, and allow you to have conversations with your agent about selling your home. To do this just click on the link in the first sentence of this paragraph or go to the sales menu at the top of this page and click on 'VALUE MY HOME'.

The next solution to have your property appraised remotely is more technological – by using video calling applications such as Skype, Zoom, Facetime, WhatsApp and others you can walk our valuer around your home. You will be able to talk to the valuer and we will also be able to guide you in terms of what we need to see to give you an accurate figure – we can also inform you of where the most valuable improvements can be made.

Finally, if you do not have the technology or the know-how to facilitate a video call, then sending over specific images of your property to us should be sufficient to give you an estimate of your property’s value. In principle, we will need images of the exterior of your property, including any gardens, garages and parking, as well as an image of each room of the property. If any further clarifications are necessary, our valuer will call or email you so that your valuation isn’t delayed.

To arrange a virtual valuation please email either simon@dee-atkinson-harrison.co.uk or adrian@dee-atkinson-harrison.co.uk or call 07970 732982

We would like to emphasise the fact that during this period you can make plans which will help to facilitate your property aspirations in the future – we are here to help you however we can.
