The how and why of our valuation report

When you’re ready to sell your home, the first thing that you have to determine is what price you will sell it at. For many a home seller, this is an arbitrary number that they arrive at depending on what they feel their home is worth, and this is a problem. Why? Because as sellers, our inherent tendency is to place a premium on things we own, especially when we’re in the market to sell them, be it a selling property, a watch or pre-owned cycle. As a result, you end up locking horns with prospective buyers who’re on the hunt for a bargain. In fact, this tussle is why many home sales don’t go through. You can read all about it here.

So what’s the best way of ensuring that you can sell your home quickly, without feeling short-changed? Pricing it right. This means affixing a price that is based on the market value of your home, and not what you think you ought to get.

If you’re wondering how you can do this, the answer is easy. Choose Zapkey. When you decide to sell your home with us, the first thing we do is give you a property valuation or home valuation report.
