What to Expect from a Market Appraisal

Published by Greenslade Taylor Hunt on 9th July 2019 -


Do you ever wonder what your property is worth in the current market? Perhaps you are considering a move and want some more information on the price your home is likely to achieve? Either way, you’ll need a Market Appraisal. But what exactly does that entail?

Owen Setter, Residential Manager at our Yeovil office, breaks down what to expect from your Market Appraisal –

Tell us as much about the property as you can before we come to see you. All of our valuers spend plenty of time in advance of appraisals researching your property, the area and local market.

Knowing as much in advance about your home as possible allows us to be prepared with plenty of detail, allowing us to give you the most accurate valuation of your home. Don’t worry about getting all your paperwork and property history out ready for us though, we won’t need the finer details until a later stage, should you decide to sell.

Live in a flat or other leasehold property? Double check how long your lease is before we come to see you – this can make a huge difference when it comes to property values.

Don’t worry about tidying up/doing things to the house especially for us. We will talk you through any improvements you can make in order to achieve the best price out of the sale of your home.

Put the kettle on – we love sitting down over a cup of tea and finding about you, your home and why it is that you want to move. We’re also interested to know where it is and what it is you would like to move to. With our reach across the West Country, we may well have the perfect property for you.

Expect us to be with you for a little while. We want to see the whole property; every room and all of any outdoor space, as well as chat to you before and after touring your property. For an average 3-4 bedroom house, appraisals usually take about an hour.

Side note: Don’t shut the dog away! One of the best things about our job is meeting friendly dogs!

We’ll always follow up our meeting with an appraisal letter, confirming everything that we discussed. However, if we miss anything, or there’s anything you forget to ask, please do give us a call. We’re always happy to talk to you. We’ll be in touch with you periodically after our visit to see if we can be of assistance.
