How Much Is My House Worth? A Guide To Valuations

When it comes to selling a property, the most important thing is the value of your home. It’s the benchmark for the price you should be selling at, and there are a number of things that are taken into account when it comes to valuing a home.

Below you’ll find all you need to know about property valuation, including what they are, who carries them out and how to get a valuation on your property today!

What is a Property Valuation?

A property valuation is ultimately the price of what your home is worth according to a surveyor.

The valuation is an assessment that takes into account a variety of factors and it is the price that you would then put your home on the market for.

Additionally, if you are looking to sell due to a divorce to a partner or if you’ve received the house via probate it is also useful to gain a valuation on the property.  

Who Carries Out A Property Valuation?

A surveyor will complete the valuation of your home, while a mortgage lender will also do a valuation on your property, although they are slightly different.

A surveyor’s valuation is much more in-depth and is the true market value of a home based on dozens of factors. A mortgage lender’s valuation is more to establish that the home is what you say it is worth.

A mortgage lender will only lend you the amount that they have valued a home. So if you were to bye buying a house priced at £250,000 but the valuation suggested it was only worth £200,000, then the mortgage lender will only lend £200,000.

What Is Considered When Valuing A Property?

When a surveyor values a property, there are tons of things taken into account.

The market value of a property is based upon the size, location and condition of a property in its most simple form. That means factors such as number of bedrooms, size of garden, any out buildings, the neighbourhood, schools in the area and much, much more.
