People often ask me when I am valuing their home ‘How do you arrive at your valuation?’
There is no straightforward answer to this question.
The properties that I value on a daily basis vary so dramatically which is the very reason why I love my job so much.
In the morning I could be looking at a Georgian farmhouse whilst the afternoon could see me strolling round an Old Rectory or a pretty cottage.
There are some obvious elements that I take into account when valuing a property namely square footage, comparable properties and the quality of the accommodation.
Other factors include location and the property’s surroundings.
However, the majority of the properties I value are very unique which to some degree nullifies the above elements.
I am left with the experience that I have gained over the last 10 years dealing in one-off properties.
This is where I believe that Fine and Country has a definite advantage when it comes to unique property because unless the estate agent you have chosen deals in this type of property consistently it can be extremely difficult to value correctly.
It is not uncommon for a prospective vendor to have large fluctuations in the valuation of their own property, which with pricing so important in the current climate, can often be the difference between finding a successful buyer or staying on the market for a lengthy period of time.
So, if you have a unique property whether it be a conversion of some description, property with land, a contemporary new build or a rambling old rectory please keep us in mind as I would love the opportunity to come out and see you.
Be sure to have a look at our selection of property that is available today and please feel free to give us a call.
