Property valuation V Market Appraisal

Sellers who opt for a quick, free estate agency valuation of their property could be missing out on vital information that could really boost the sale price of their home.

Lawson Estate Agents say rather than just give an overview of what a property might fetch, their experienced and knowledgeable staff know that the devil’s in the detail – and can always reveal the bigger picture.

“It’s the difference between giving a simple valuation or a proper market appraisal, and it’s the latter that makes Lawson Estate Agents, Estate Agency…Only Better,” said Marketing Director Chris Mervyn.

“If people want an instant idea of how much their home is currently worth, our online valuation tool is perfect to give them a rough figure to work from. Our own website offers a FREE ONLINE VALUATION with figures based on sold prices and estimated figures. This is a great starting point but if someone is really serious about selling, then a Market Appraisal is needed – and that is where our staff come into their own.”

Chris said that what he believes sets Lawson apart from some of its competitors is the combination of unrivalled local market knowledge and experience, as well as focusing on the fine detail.

“There is a real difference between property owners looking for a price and those who are actually serious about selling’ explained Chris.

“The phrasing ‘get my house valued’ does little to help and is why many members of the public get confused when speaking to an estate agent. Here at Lawson we are professionals and our expertise is forged from years of buying and selling property and helping people move along their own journey. If you had a problem with your car, whilst the initial investigation would be quick to solve the issue (in this case getting a possible marketing price) you need to invest time and expertise – which gets you the maximum price and enables us to sell the property to the right buyer, to the right timescales.”

‘It’s about properly assessing what the unique qualities of your property are, being able to identify simple, cost effective improvements/repairs and seeing the benefits of where your house is, not just what it is. And it’s not just about giving you a price, it’s about a detailed, honest, accurate assessment that may include a few home truths you may not like to hear, but that’s an important part of building trust,” said Chris.

“Every one of our team members has exceptional knowledge of both the Plymouth market and the surrounding area and also has a wealth of advice and expertise at their fingertips on wringing every last drop out of home’s sales potential.”

“You just have to be serious about selling, and if you are, we will be completely serious about what we can do to make it happen – for the best possible sale price.”
