What Estate Agents Look for When Valuing a Property

Thinking of selling your property? Here are a few things we, as estate agents, tend to look out for when valuing a property...

Property Valuation Sheffield

As estate agents we take into consideration many factors when valuing a property. We've valued many properties over the years and we've figured out exactly what to look for, so here are some of the main aspects that contribute to the ultimate value of a property.

Presentation and décor;
The overall cleanliness and decoration of a property play an integral role in its value. Stained carpets and walls and ripped wallpaper will instantly bring the figure down.

Size;
Is the property suitable for a family, a loving couple or an independent individual- these are all important factors to consider as this indicates who the property should be marketed to. Space is also important; how many bedrooms does it have/potentially have, could there be a study or even room to extend.

Kitchen;
Often referred to as the heart of the home, and now an important factor when purchasing a property. How modern is the kitchen? Is there room to fit all of the family? These are frequently asked questions when considering a property.

Bathrooms;
The more bathrooms the property has the better, as this is frequently become a popular request. A down stairs bathroom or an en suite are desirable factors.

Neighbourhood;
What is the local neighbourhood like? Is their access to local amenities, such as the shop or schools. What kind of road is the property situated on; is it busy with restricted parking, or more reserved and well maintained? Where are the nearest transport links; is there an easy bus route or access to trains?

Garden and outdoor space;
A reasonably sized, well-kept garden will instantly add value to a property, south facing gardens are also very desirable. If the property doesn’t have a garden, is there a lovely back yard or balcony?

Stand out feature;
What makes the property different to all the other properties on the market? Perhaps it has a beautiful log burner, or gorgeous periodic wooden beams.
