Book Your Property Valuation

If you are considering selling your property or just curious to understand the value and the selling process the first thing to do is to get an idea of your property value. 

Understanding the real market value of your property is key to being able to market it effectively. Setting a sales price for a property is always a balancing act between trying to maximise the offers you get from your potential buyers and being able to attract the right people to view. It is very easy to set the property price too high and not get any interest. Here at Cox & Co we will not only advise on the best price to market your property, but we will also discuss and agree on the best strategy to maximise the property’s value and achieve the best possible price.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to our valuation process

When We Call

When we value the property and advise you on the best strategy to make your moving dreams a reality. We will make recommendations on what we think people in the current market would be willing to pay for it and how best we achieve your best outcome. Our team will also consider small improvements that could be made to increase the value and saleability of your property. Maximising the appeal of your property is about providing buyers with what they’re looking for. Staging and decorating can help potential buyers see themselves in your property.

Frequently asked questions

Are there simple property valuation calculations that can be done?

Often valuations will be based on the previous sale price of a property multiplied by the percentage growth of local properties since. This can be factored against what similar properties have sold for recently to come up with an estimate. This can give an idea of value, but is not a very accurate way to do a property valuation. An expert valuer will normally be far more accurate. At Cox & Co we have sold a lot of properties and we normally have a gut feel for the value as soon as we have walked around a house or commercial building. We do a lot of research to back up our valuation too.

Why do property valuations come in different?

Property valuations are subjective. In addition, some estate agents will provide inflated property valuations to get properties into their listings, knowing full well that it is highly unlikely that the property will achieve the valuation they have put on it. At Cox & Co, we are honest and open about what price we think your property will sell for.

Can my house sell for more than the valuation?

Yes. The valuation is our estimate of the current market value of your property. The price you will get is always a function of what a buyer is willing to pay. If your property is marketed well and there are several people interested then the price can be pushed up. It is also possible for you to market your property with the tagline "offers over" in order to set the valuation as the baseline price rather than the asking price.
