The price is right -a guide to valuation:
Don’t look solely at property portals, as these will tell you the prices that sellers are asking, not what they are achieving. “Get the opinion of three local agents,” says Christian Warman, a director of Tedworth Property. “Often people opt for the middle valuation. There is logic to this, but also ask each agent to demonstrate how and why they’ve come up with the price they have given. If they can’t justify it, alarm bells should be ringing.” Compare the agents’ valuations with sold price data on Rightmove, which shows the latest Land Registry figures.
