movewithus, one of the UK’s largest network of estate agents, has advised prospective sellers to get three independent valuations to increase the chance of a fast sale at a competitive price.
The company believes that homeowners could risk losing thousands of pounds if the property market starts to slide and they have tied themselves into the highest valuation.
To assist sellers, movewithus has launched a comprehensive valuation report, which for a £75 cost will provide two independent valuations by local estate agents, a desktop valuation, comparable local sales data and historical selling prices for the property in question.
The service can be accessed at www.movewithus.co.uk.
Robin King, director of movewithus says: “We value over 24,000 properties a year and sell over 12,000, and our experience says that valuation and sales price are often widely different as many homeowners opt for the agent providing the highest valuation. Sadly, this often means a lengthy delay until the price is revised; whilst this is often just a time consuming pain in a rising market it could cost thousands in a volatile or falling market.”
