    START THE BALL ROLLING WITH AN ACCURATE MARKET APPRAISAL

    As a homeowner, you need an accurate market appraisal to help you plan a successful move.

    After all, the price you could get for your home is a significant number. It will affect your new home choices - even influence whether (or not) you put your property on the market.

    Your asking price also affects the market response... That's why our in-depth market appraisals consider a full range of factors - to help your place make the strongest first impression on the market.

    Here's what we'll consider:

    · The buoyancy of the local property market

    · Your home's location, condition, and unique features

    · The current demand for properties like yours

    · The price (and speed) similar properties have sold for

    · The comparable prices of equivalent properties on the current market

    · Whether you want a quick sale or whether you're willing to hold out

    What to expect after your home's been priced

    After weighing up all these factors, we'll recommend a 'for sale' price in writing.

    Your price will be our professional opinion as to what your home is really worth.

    Rest assured we'd never overinflate its value - just to secure your business. Whilst a high valuation can be tempting, an unrealistic asking price is not in your best interests. It can put buyers off, reduce interest in your home, and eventually lead to unnecessary, costly reductions (all of which are very frustrating).

    It's why you can trust us to be transparent and upfront about what you can expect - to prevent disappointment in the long run.

    We'll also explain how we plan to market and showcase your property - Remember... every sales strategy is different and tailored to your needs. For example, where your property will feature, how we'll arrange and organise viewings, and how we'll communicate with you and your potential buyers.

    And our overall aim... That you end the process feeling confident you've found the perfect buyer who buys your property at a price, which feels right.

    So you see there's nothing to lose... Hern & Crabtree market appraisals are free with no strings attached!

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Really impressed with Hern and Crabtree!
      "Really impressed with Hern and Crabtree. They were good at listening to how I wanted to sell my house and made sure I was able to feedback on the sales brochure in timely way. 
       I was advised to sell via an open day which worked really well, and I had some strong offers by the same afternoon. It was a much less painful process than traditional single appointments, as the focus is on presenting the house for a particular day. 
       Communication throughout the moving process was excellent from Hern and Crabtree and their sales progression team made a real difference in terms of a speedy sale. From offer to completion took just over six weeks. Impressive!"
