Home Valuations with Caroline Morse
This week we asked Caroline Morse, Branch Principal at our Kidderminster branch to describe the process of having your home valued and the benefits of choosing Nock Deighton to complete the valuation for you.
Caroline, what can Nock Deighton offer?
"The benefit of considering Nock Deighton’s advice is that we utilise both the knowledge and skills of a traditional agent with our face to face meeting and in depth advice but also have the most innovative tools and technology so finding out the value of their home is an easy process no matter whether they are just considering its market value or want to know the full details of what is involved."
"As we offer a bespoke and personalised service the face to face market appraisal can be tailored to suit which is why we ask detailed questions at the booking stage. We can be with a client for a quick 20 minute update on their value, which is often the case for clients who we update on a yearly basis, to the more in depth hour or hour and a half for someone ready to market straight away as we want to give them enough time to have all their questions answered and to give us time to provide them with an initial marketing strategy so we can get an idea of their thoughts and hopes for the process."
How does the home valuation process work?
"The process will involve a face to face meeting with the owner which on average takes an hour to ensure we have discussed all the points and marketing tools we plan to utilise for their property.
We document everything as quickly as possible to ensure the client has confidence that what is discussed is in writing to refer to when considering the agent of choice.
I provide contact details directly back to me, including my mobile number if required so the client knows I am here for them whenever they need me.
I follow up with them if required before they instruct me to market and at this point if they are looking for a longer term view I agree a date in the future to contact them so I can update their appraisal figure so they can plan for the future.
Once instructed we guide them through the process to ensure they are complying with legal requirements and ensure we market the property as quickly as possible but most importantly with the attention to detail you will only fine with Nock Deighton."
