House Prices

It Isn't Rocket Science

A house is worth as much as someone is prepared to pay for it. Pricing a property can be pretty easy if you live on a street with a number of similar properties. Where it can get tricky is if you live in a very unique property.

One easy way to get an idea an asking price for your property is to get a local estate agent to carry out a free valuation. Most estate agents offer this free service in return for pitching their service to you.

In reality, estate agents use the same free internet tools that you also have access to, combined with some local knowledge. Most people are aware of the current spectrum of property prices on their street and where your house sits within that spectrum, depending on the usual variations such as the condition of your property and how much improvement work has been carried out – double glazing, loft conversion etc. For most people this isn’t rocket science.

So why not use the free internet tools to look up the sale prices for properties in your street. Net House Prices is a good, free tool to use:
