Improve your Valuation

Font size :
Q. Do you have any tips for home owners who are selling their property and want to get the best possible valuation? How can I improve the property’s value without spending a lot of money?

A. It is definitely possible to implement cost-effective improvements to your property that could possible improve its valuation. 
Firstly, make sure that the property is well-presented and maintained. The valuer’s opinion of the property could affect the property’s price tag, so it is important create the right impression straight away. The lawn and garden should be tidy and any personal clutter should be cleaned up around the house. If the property is untidy and dirty, the value may decline as they valuer will have to account for clean-up expenses.

Secondly, take advantage of the natural aspects of the property. For example, if the property has fantastic views, but they are obstructed by overgrown trees, you could miss out on a higher value amount. 

Thirdly, if you are able to give evidence of recent sales of other similar properties in the area, it could help determine your property’s value. So, if you attend auctions or open houses around your area, make sure to take a brochure so the valuer can easily contact the real estate agent to confirm the sale price.
