Our property experts give 5 essential insights on how to get the best estimated market value of your property

If you are a homeowner that has had your property for some time you may be wondering “how much is my property worth?” Getting an up to date property appraisal is always a good idea as different factors change the value of property over time. Also, there may be factors that you haven’t taken into account that can affect property prices in your area.

Our Namar Properties experts are experienced in all factors in property valuation and offer their 5 essential recommendations. 

#1: Get A Property Appraisal to Help Decide if Renovating Before Selling is a Good Investment

Having your property appraised by and getting advice from an experienced real estate agent will help you make the decision as to any renovations that can be done on your property that will help you get a better price and be a good return on investment. As important is to ensure you don’t overspend on any remodeling or extensions that may not be needed.

#2: Understand That Property Values Differ in the Same Location

Researching the value of properties in your suburb by scanning the weekend newspapers or online is a good way to get a price estimate but it will not give you an accurate evaluation of your property’s value. Here you need the help of a professional with knowledge and insights of the various factors beyond your homes location to give a more accurate market value.
