4 Reasons Why You Should Get Your Property Valued

A property valuation from Jones Robinson will provide you with an expert, qualified opinion on the value of your home. We strongly recommend getting a valuation any time you buy or sell, as it allows you not only to gauge an ideal price, but also to fully understand what’s happening in the current market and where your property stands.

Perhaps the most common reason our customers ask for a professional property valuation is to enable them to sell their home at the best possible price. However, as April brings a new financial year, you may be interested in a property valuation for a variety of other reasons:

Home Insurance

In 2011, it was reported that around a third of British households were under-insured and thus, unprotected. Outdated home insurance policies are often a result of increasing property prices that were overlooked at the time. A property valuation from Jones Robinson will allow you to review your insurance policy with your home’s current value in mind, leaving you fully insured and protected.

Refinancing:

A property valuation is a must, every time you plan on refinancing your home. Potential lenders may well require you to have a valuation, in order for them to confirm that the value of your property is more than the loan that you are asking for.  We can help make sure that you have the right information on hand.

Building Equity

If it’s been a few years since you last had a professional property valuation, you may well discover that the equity on your home has increased enough to renovate, extend or even to put down a deposit on a another property. Of course, you may not necessarily be looking to make any of these investments, but it is always useful to know how much equity you possess.

Increasing ROI

Though primarily your home, every property is an investment and when the time comes to move on, you’ll want to get the highest possible return on your property. A property valuation becomes increasingly important for increasing your ROI, especially if you plan on extending or renovating your home. Obtaining the information from a property valuation can help you ensure that you don’t make a loss by over-capitalising on your property.
