Before valuating a property, agents will conduct thorough research regarding the area of the property, allowing them to put your home in context. Understanding the local market as well as process in specific areas is imperative.

To help, agents will research the latest sold prices of properties similar to yours within your area.

Size the Property

One of the first things an agent will do when they get to your property is to look around. This allows them to understand the property, take a variety of measurements and note everything they see regarding the property.

Once an agent has looked around the property, they can begin to calculate an estimate on how much the property is worth. Due to their previous research before the initial property inspection, they will have a rough idea of the price per sqm!
