The market appraisal begins with a surface inspection of the property. Then its characteristics, location, style, size and tenure are considered.

The RICS registered valuer will then make a comparison of like for like properties that have recently sold.

This type of valuation can be used by individuals who may not necessarily wish to sell their property but require an impartial and realistic valuation of their asset.

Why use an RICS qualified valuer and not an Estate Agent?

Appraising the value of a property is a complex issue where many factors have to be taken into account – it is a combination of art and science.

Independent property valuations are only performed by RICS Registered valuers/surveyors.

It is a common misconception that Estate Agents value your property for you. Agents simply guide you to a suggested asking price – they cannot be relied upon to provide objective and accurate valuations.
