Stranraer, United Kingdom (PressExposure) August 17, 2009 -- Private property sales website the Little House Company have launched a new property valuation service to allow private sellers to make more accurate judgements about the values of their homes. The service, which is aimed at both buyers and sellers, will allow private individuals access to a system currently used by professionals.
The automated property valuations will help private sellers and potential buyers make an assessment of the true value of a given property. The report -- which can be delivered in a matter of hours -- is aimed at helping people make the right judgment when valuing a house.
Of particular use for buyers; the tool provides a wide range of additional information about the properties in question including:
- Date of recent house sales
- Sold house prices
- Numbers of properties in the street
- Types of properties in the street
- Comparable property valuations
- Properties for sale
- Average house prices
- Average wage earnings in that area
- Types of housing stock
- Percentage of owner occupied homes vs social housing
- Population demographics
- House price trends
- Local street price rankings
- Street ranking by turnover
- Crime statistics
It's sensible to do as much research as possible before buying or selling a property and this system makes it easy for potential buyers to gain facts about properties before contacting anyone, which they may not want to do for fear of wasting anyone's time.
Valuing a property correctly is probably one of the most important factors in achieving a quicker sale. Little House Company director Nick Marr said:
"When an estate agent values a property they simply make a judgement call based on their local knowledge of the property and local market; by giving buyers and sellers access to the same information the new tool means values can be made as accurately as by an estate agent."
