The importance of having your property valued

What many people don’t know is that the valuation of a property is a combination of skill, knowledge and a little bit of educated guesswork.

If you’re considering getting your property valued, hopefully the following information will help you better understand the process. One of the most important, if not the most important factor in a property valuation is the location of the property – hence the saying “location, location, location.” Naturally, your house will be worth more if it is located in a more secure or affluent area. Additionally, the type of property and how these properties are selling in your area are also important in the valuation process. Regarding the strategies you can employ to increase the valuation figure, the best place to start is the kitchen. Most real estate experts will agree that the kitchen is regarded by most buyers to be the most important room in the house. Subsequently, if you want a high valuation, it is a necessity to have a well laid out and spacious kitchen. Buyers want high-quality materials; especially for the floors and worktops, as well as this, the appliances are also important in the valuing process.
