    RICS Homebuyer Reports and Valuation Reports

    The RICS Homebuyer Report identifies what the surveyor considers as the most important issues that you should be aware of. By applying condition ratings of red, amber and green to the elements of the building, services, garages and outbuildings, etc, our surveyor will tell you whether the defects are serious or urgent. It also includes the surveyor's opinion of market value and reinstatement cost for your insurance purposes.

    You may only require an independent assessment of the property's value and this report includes a limited inspection, similar to a mortgage valuation.

    We also carry out valuation surveys for a variety of other purposes such as commercial valuation, landlord and tenant, marriage value, energy performance certificates, planning advice, feasibility studies etc.

    • Introduction

      Going the extra mile to provide our vendors and purchasers the top quality service you expect from Hose Rhodes Dickson is what our experienced and friendly staff do,

      Here is what our customers had to say about their experiences with our Shanklin Office.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      polite, helpful and professional
      In the last five years I have helped a lot of friends and family move to the Island, and have had experience of many of our local Estate Agents and their levels of service. In the last few months I have been dealing with HRD at Shanklin, and specifically with Ben Eighteen, to complete a purchase. The whole office are polite, helpful and professional, and Ben himself went out of his way to make sure everything was as smooth as possible. He dealt speedily with my questions to the vendors (on the Mainland), and gave us answers as soon as he had them. Over the course of the purchase, I had to make several visits to the property to check and measure various things, as you do, and it was never a problem; Ben was always cheerful and helpful. He made the whole process as pain-free and pleasant as possible. I cannot speak highly enough of the service I received, and definitely recommend HRD to others.
    • Seller Testimonial

      professional, friendly and keen to help
      During the sale of our home we have found Ellen, and all the staff at Hose Rhodes to be professional, friendly and keen to help. We have always felt confident with the information and advice given. In addition, we have always had prompt feedback following viewings and have had great support from the beginning to end of sale.

    • Seller Testimonial

      very friendly and professional
      Having not sold a property in a number of years it was a daunting thought going on the market. Philip Weeks at Hose Rhodes Dickson Shanklin, was sensitive to this and aware that our home had been in the family for 31 years. He provided us with a calm, accurate view of our property which reflected in the market price, and, we believe that this significantly contributed to the very swift sale that ensued.

      The staff at the Shanklin branch were very friendly and professional. They provided help and advice along the way which ensured that no time was wasted in moving the sale through to exchange of contracts and completion within a short space of time. We would whole heartedly recommend the team at Hose Rhodes Dickson Shanklin if you are considering selling your property.

      Regards Stefan and Amy
    • Seller Testimonial

      The communication and speed of responses have been brilliant
      Loren, thanks again for all your help. The communication and speed of responses have been brilliant from yourself and Ellen.
      We will most definitely be in contact in the future should we need to use an estate agent.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Professional, attentive and fully committed

      We have used Hose Rhodes Dickson for the last 10 years and have found them to always be professional, attentive and fully committed to the sale of our new developments.

      Most recently, Loren and the team have successfully sold the 14 properties at our Old School Mews development with great success, keeping on top of every sale at all times.

      We can confidently recommend Hose Rhodes Dickson and the Shanklin Team for your sale and purchase.

      Nick Clemens and Ben Tanner.

    • Seller Testimonial

      You will not be dissapointed

      I have just completed the sale of my house in Shanklin and it is all down to the team at Hose Rhodes Dickson. In particular I would like to thank Loren Allen as Team Leader who was excellent in keeping me informed at each and every stage of the sales process and made sure that I did not drop the ball.

      Right from the initial instruction phase I had the feeling that I was in safe hands and, especially as an absentee owner selling with vacant possession, I felt confident that they would look after my property and interests 100 %.

       With HRD I never had cause to wonder if anyone had left the light on or the door unlocked as was the case with another agency who I foolishly appointed to co-list the property. Their notification system of each and every viewing both before and after was a welcome breath of fresh air to the often apathetic real estate agency norms.

      Big shout out as well to Philip Weeks and his analyst team who sent the weekly Property Performance Reports with the online viewing statistics of not just my property but on the overall market in general in the surrounding areas and for being available whenever necessary to chat over strategies to achieve a quick sale. To summarize I would have no hesitation in recommending Hose Rhodes Dickson to anybody looking to sell their property on the Isle of Wight. You will not be disappointed.

      Regards and good luck in the future.


    • Seller Testimonial

      Helps every step along the way

      We have always found Loren and Phillip very professional and efficient in our dealings through the Agency.

      So nice to find an agent that helps every step along the way.

      Well done them !

      Shirley Ryan

    • Seller Testimonial

      They would be our automatic first choice

      HRD found a house for us when we first came to the island and have helped us with our decision to 'downsize' five years later by selling it and facilitating our move.

       They listened carefully to what we wanted, judged the local market accurately, helped us fix the right asking price and delivered a buyer within a matter of days.

       They clearly knew both the market and their clients. All the HRD people exhibited the right level of friendliness, positivity and efficiency. They were tenacious in following up progress. When our own intended purchase, introduced by another agent, fell through HRD stepped in, organised a short-term rental to enable our own sale to proceed, and found us the right property to buy.

       Hopefully we will not need them again, but they would be our automatic first choice.

      Maggie & Eric Hemming

      Went very smoothly with Loren's expert help

      Buying our first house was a daunting prospect but everyone at Hose Rhodes Dickson were so helpful, professional and friendly.

      Unfortunately the first sale fell through due to vendor error but Loren made us feel better about the whole experience and we felt extremely fortunate that the next house we chose was one of her listings. Everything with that one went very smoothly with Loren's expert help, we couldn't have done it without her and her team.
