Getting the right worth of your home is simple impossible. After all, there are a lot of things associated with your house such as emotions, feelings, moments, and celebrations etc. that make your house a home. However, if you were to sell or mortgage your property, you need to have a figure which is indicative of the monetary value your house commands. While some people get their friends’ property valuation firms to do the valuation in order to quote a higher price, it is always better to be true to yourself than run into deep legal trouble later on in life. Always get property valuations done from a trusted property valuator so that you’re honest as a seller and true to the buyer.
While getting property valuation done, you should always keep a check list in hand that takes note of the following things:
Get a proper visual inspection done: When you call a property valuer home, they will give you two options – either to get a drive-past valuation done or get a full visual inspection done. If they are lazy and adapted to an easy going way of work, they will always suggest the former. However, you should insist on the latter and if they company doesn’t agree, you should call up another firm. By getting a full visual inspection, you will be costlier but will offer you complete satisfaction.
Be personally present: When the property valuator pays a visit, make sure you’re present personally. This way, you can clear all his doubts that might arise while touring your property. More the doubts you clear, more accurate will be the property valuator’s results.
Keep your property neat: It is always said that first impression is the last impression. If the valuation guy comes inside only to see your books lying on the floor, bed without a bed sheet and dust on the ceiling, you will only do badly for yourself. No Australian property valuations company will value your property highly in such circumstances.
Try to improve your home: An extra dab of paint on your ‘peeling-off’ walls will make your house look newly furnished and command higher house prices Adelaide. Before calling anyone for valuation, try and get done with minor repair works such as getting your tap fixed, your electrical fittings done etc.
Give proof in case of future renovation plans: In case you are planning to renovate or refurbish your house in near future, get letters from the contractor showing quotations. This will only strengthen your claim and make it look legitimate. By showing the valuators proof, you can fetch a higher price during your Australian property valuations.
Don’t put pressure on the valuator: When someone’s doing the valuation of your property, don’t try to pressurize him into liking things which don’t appeal to him. Unnecessarily pressurizing him to increase the valuation of your home on paper might irritate him and he might decrease the cost of your property by a bad margin.
Last but not the least, get a trusted and reputed property valuator to do your property valuations.
