The benefits of an in-person property valuation

Whether you’re actively planning to put your house on the market, are curious about what your home may be worth, or are simply considering your options, instant online valuations from property websites provide a great starting point. You enter your address and details about your property, then receive an instant estimate of what your home could be worth. It's quick, easy, and you can do it any time of the day or night at a time convenient to you.  

However, an instant online valuation cannot see the condition of your home, the décor, and improvements made, or any extensions and renovations you've made to the property. It also doesn't factor in real-time demand from buyers in the local area.  

In short, instant online valuations are no substitute for an in-person valuation done by a knowledgeable local estate agent. An estate agent will have the expertise of the local area, the most up-to-date market knowledge, and, most importantly: they will see your property, inside and out. They will be able to assess its kerb appeal, they’ll be able to see the condition, layout, and décor, and will be able to give you an accurate valuation based on all these factors.

Benefits of an in-person property valuation from one of our expert estate agents include:

  • a depth of local knowledge of both your street and the community as a whole
  • expert insight into how to improve your property ahead of putting it on the market
  • real-life experience of witnessing your property before hosting viewings
  • we can put you in touch with the best mortgage advisors and financial experts in Brighton & Hove

Our passionate property experts are happy to offer a no-fee valuation of your property at a time that suits you so that you’re equipped with the information you need to make your next property decision.
