Why a property valuation is more than just a number

Why a property valuation is more than just a number
Posted by James Hood

It’s always good to know what your property’s worth, right? It’s an investment after all, and you could be pleasantly surprised with the figure you’re given.

But we think there’s more to a valuation than just a number. Getting price advice from friendly, trusted experts means you have all the information you need to plan your future, whether that involves moving to a new location, upsizing, downsizing, saving some cash or investing in another property.

Valuations are really about living the life you want - a chance to evaluate where you are now and where you want to be.

Outlet valuations are completely free – and there’s no obligation to sell afterwards. We simply give you the insight you need to make the best decisions for you.


Here are five good reasons why you can trust Outlet with your valuation:

We’re the original LGBT property company

We’ve been providing a second-to-none service for TWENTY years!

We have the best knowledge of the central London property market

We have plenty of international investor contacts if you choose to sell

We have a seven point appraisal (see below for info)


When it comes to valuing your property, we stick to our tried and tested Seven Point Appraisal:


We will present photos and descriptions of properties currently available that compare to yours in size and/or location



We will supply a list of properties currently sold or under offer in the immediate area or that match the style and size of your property



We will provide a current snapshot of the latest price trends and sales information in the general area and/or the UK as well as any other immediate considerations that might affect the time for sale or the price.



We will make helpful suggestions about presenting the property for achieving the best price or ease of sale. This can include simple changes that improve the appearance of the property in photographs or larger, more significant changes that raise the sale price.



We provide a thorough brochure giving details on the local area. Known as ‘The Knowledge’ the booklet includes a map showing nearby amenities, schools, parks and transport links that is helpful for buyers and can make your property more appealing. This will also appear as an online link when we advertise your home.



We will provide a choice of advertising options and marketing styles. We also write fresh, interesting property particulars with photography that helps your property stand out from the masses by telling a story.



This is unique to Sales by Outlet - a document signed by us that shows the 5 promises we make. It’s our way of showing you how much we care about the service we provide and why you can put your trust in our sales team.
