Know your property's value

By Darren Standish

Standish tnBefore considering whether to develop your property it is essential that you have an understanding of the current value of your property.

This will allow you to compare any gains in value as a result of the development process and determine which options will maximise your returns.

There are a number of ways to determine the current value of your property, however the most common method is to compare your property to recent sales in your area and make any adjustments to value due to items included or not included in the comparison property.

Many homeowners may determine the value of their properties by looking at other properties available for sale in their area. However this method may not give the most accurate estimate as often the price that properties are marketed for do not necessarily represent the actual price that the property is sold for.

Many local real estate agents offer a no obligation free appraisal of the current value of your property. Agents will provide you with properties which have sold in your area, including the price it sold for and the number of days the property was on the market. This value can be then used as a suitable starting point prior to embarking on the development process.
