A Remote Valuation refers to an inspection that is conducted using information accessible via online platforms and does not require the examiner to physically attend the property at any stage.
By combining these features with our wealth of professional experience, you can obtain an indication of the market value without having to incur the costs of a full inspection.
When compared with our standard valuation services, these remote appraisals are a much quicker way of obtaining a professional estimate on the home’s value. From the point of instruction, you can expect to have received our appraisal by the end of the next working day. This makes it the fastest way to obtain an independent valuation. There are also significant advantages when it comes to the logistical implications. For instance, with no physical entry being required to the property, you will not have the added fuss of arranging a suitable date for the surveyor to attend or liaising with the estate agent to organize access. What’s more, if you are a landlord and thinking about putting your property on the market but don’t yet wish to notify the tenants, the remote assessment can offer a far more discrete method of valuation.
