The Importance of a Pre-Sale Valuation

When thinking of selling your property, your first step should be to have a pre-sale valuation carried out by a local solicitor estate agent.  This will give you an indication of your property’s value as well as the likely sale price and a breakdown of the costs involved.  At  VMH Solicitors, we offer this service FREE of charge!



What is a pre-sale valuation?

A pre-sale valuation is an appraisal of your home carried out by a solicitor estate agent. The solicitor estate agent will meet you at your property in order to provide you with an indication of the likely value and sale price. Most agents will offer this for free and with no obligation for you to list your property for sale with them.


A pre-sale valuation gives you the chance to meet with a few agents to compare fees and services before you commit to listing your property.  You may be attracted by low fees, tempted by the highest value, or act on a gut feeling.  Whatever your reasons, it is important to choose the agent you trust will do the best for you.

The Importance of a pre-sale valuation

A pre-sale valuation will not only provide you with the value of your property but also give you an insight into what to expect from your selling agent. You’ll get to meet the people you are entrusting to sell your most valuable asset. Obtain an unbiased opinion of your home and how it will present to buyers. Gain tips on whether to carry out any improvements and how to handle viewings.  Look through the marketing materials on offer and talk through the service provided.
