Valuing Your Property
Your property is one of your most valued possessions, that’s why here at Trivett Hicks Estate Agents Hereford we want to help you achieve the best possible price to make your dreams reality. During the market appraisal process one our friendly and expert team members will value your home using a wealth of local and expert knowledge. We will be with you every step of the way through the selling process, from advising how to present your property ready for marketing to advice on legal matters. We aim to make your selling journey as enjoyable and stress free as possible.
One of the major factors that can drive up the price of a property is the actual area it's situated. We carefully research and consider this when marketing each and every one of our properties. We assess how close the property is to good transport links, schools and parks, etc. If there are lots of upmarket shops and restaurants around, it naturally means the demographic of that area is more affluent, and that means houses nearby are more desirable.
Almost any improvements that have been made to a property will raise the value, particularly if they've been done to a high-spec standard. Something as simple as keeping period features will help a higher valuation. Providing they're in good condition, people are prepared to pay a bit more for things like sash windows or original fireplaces. At Trivett Hicks Estate Agents Hereford we take the time to talk to you and get to know the property during our market appraisals allowing you the time to tell us what you feel are the key attributes to the property. In addition we are always on hand to help and advise you on improvements that may help with the sale of your property.
Aside from the obvious considerations, such as keeping the place clean, tidy and well maintained, there are other aesthetic factors that can help raise the value of a property. From having freshly cut flowers in the living room to a freshly brewed pot of coffee in the kitchen to create an inviting and homely feel, we at Trivett Hicks Estate Agents Hereford are always on hand to help and advise you to get the most from your property.
Finally, the ambience of a property can be a factor in determining its value. The simple truth is, families tend to keep houses in better shape, people who have put down some roots in a property generally look after it more - and something as simple as that can help raise the price. A house that's been loved and cared for will always be more attractive to any buyer.
