    Valuation surveys are suitable in a range of circumstances where a more in-depth survey is not required. These include:

    For homebuyers who want a value for a cash purchase with no mortgage

    In matrimonial cases needing a value of assets that are to be shared out

    A value for inheritance tax or capital gains tax

    For Housing Associations or Shared Ownership schemes

    On behalf of relocation companies

    HomeBuyers Report From £400

    The RICS Homebuyers report aims to give you professional advice to help you to make a reasoned and informed decision on whether to go ahead with the purchase of a property taking into account of any repairs or replacements the property needs. The report also points out what further advice you should take before exchanging contracts.

    It contains:

    The surveyor's professional opinion on the 'Market Value' of the property

    A insurance reinstatement figure for the property

    A list of problems that the surveyor considers may affect the value of the property

    Buildings Survey From £800

    Often called a "Full Structural Survey", a building survey is a comprehensive report on the existing building, its current condition, and its likely future maintenance requirements.

    It is designed to tell the purchaser exactly what they need to know to protect themselves against defects and items of disrepair that may not come under a general buildings insurance policy.

    Mark Nicholson - Partner
    Meet Mark #theretfordestateagent
    I have lived in and around Retford for my entire life and myself, my wife and our three sons are proud to call the town our home. 

    I moved into Estate Agency in 2013 and, after becoming qualified with the National Federation of Property Professionals, quickly progressed to become the sales manager & valuer at Newton Fallowell, one of the largest high street estate agencies in Retford.

    Since entering the industry, I have become one of the areas most respected authorities on both the local property market & property values. I am well known locally for my innovative and forward-thinking approach to property marketing and exploring new avenues to get properties noticed and I realised long before the other local agents the power of social media and through #theretfordestateagent page, I have become the most followed estate agent on facebook in Retford. 

    For my clients, this offers huge benefits with my property post regularly reaching an audience of over 20,000 local residents within 24 hours of going live. After leaving Newton Fallowell I spent a year working for purplebricks where I learned a completely different approach to estate agency and have subsequently concluded that neither approach suits all clients. Nicholsons Estate Agents, therefore, offer all options, so that our clients can choose estate agency however they want it. 

    I absolutely love my job and thrive on receiving positive reviews & personal recommendations from my clients. I believe in providing a high-quality service based on integrity, that goes above & beyond expectation, whilst also offering complete transparency on our fees. Unlike many agents I understand that a house is more than just a property, it's a home and this makes it greater than the sum of its component parts. I would love the opportunity to visit your home and discuss what my agency can do to get you moving.

    I have lived in the local area all my life, growing up on a farm near Retford. 

    I have always been interested in the outdoors and I have a keen interest in gardening. I went to school locally and made good friends.

    My agency career started 5 years ago after an 8 year period working for a long-established high street retailer. From there I learnt the art of providing good customer service and this continued in my job as a residential sales negotiator in Retford. I also learnt how looking after people and property is important when someone decides to move home

    Attention to detail and good communication skills go hand in hand and I'm proud to have good local knowledge that is important in my role.

      So refreshing
      Fantastic service from Mark! Great communication from start to finish. It's so refreshing to have someone on hand at times to suit me rather than being restricted to the usual 9-5pm. Mark's knowledge and experience helped reassure me through a daunting process and he made it all so easy. Mark took fantastic photos of my property, which actually made me question why i'm selling! The detail gone into listing my property along with great photos led to a sale being agreed in less than 48 hours. I'd highly recommend to anyone!

Throughout the entire process he has been thorough in his approach, quick in his actions and knowledge and readily available to answer our questions and queries.

      Very professional
      I have recently sold my house in Retford through Mark and I cannot recommend his service enough. From the initial instruction right through until the end of the transaction. The photos that he took were very professional and his attention to detail is commendable. His local knowledge and expertise is of great assistance to both sellers and buyers alike. Mark offers his support and a high level of service at all times.

      Clear and consistent guidance
      I actually can't rate Mark highly enough. We have known Mark for over 7 years and during that period we have bought 2 houses and sold 1. He has an in depth knowledge of the market, a professional approach, excellent ability to provide clear and consistent guidance as well as a desire to go the extra mile to ensure his customers are supported and happy throughout a transaction. Should you wish to sell a house in the area, I strongly recommend you discuss your next move with Mark and make your own mind up.

      Attention to detail
      Mark Nicholson was our local agent and from the first enquiry through to point of our property being SSTC he was brilliant. The time and attention to detail Mark put in when photographing our property for our advert was superb, as well as the prompt completion of the advert. Not many estate agents visit you on a Sunday afternoon and have a fully detailed live advert with photographs on the net by 9pm the same day!! Mark kept us up to date at all hours of the day with feedback and details of offers made on the property. His previous knowledge of property sales really helped with any queries we had.

      Oooooooo they are good
      Wow - we were on the receiving end of a mix of excellent house selling skills and top class customer service. I would give more stars if I could. Quick sale and a great price to pay for this. Our house was previously on the market for 12 months with only one viewer and no sale. So we changed agents. Mark Nicholson came to see us and prepared a new brochure complete with aerial photos. We sold our house in a month. Throughout that time, Mark rang every week to give us updates. He also constantly rotated the photos on our online advert to attract different viewers. We trusted Mark's strategy and he dealt with the negotiations for us - our buyers increased their offer by £40k in 4 days. I have to say this was the least stressful house sale I have ever done. Mark even rang to congratulate us on the day the contracts were exchanged. Truthfully the best.

      Mark has exceeded our expectations in everything he has done - from the quality of his pictures and video to his innovative methods of marketing our property. His knowledge of the property market and how best to present your home is invaluable, and he delivers on everything that he promises. He makes himself available at times to suit you, and keeps you regularly updated on progress.

      Spot on - 5* service - thank you Mark
      We were so impressed from our initial consultation with Mark that we didn't feel the need to get a valuation with any other agent. The advice given on getting the right price point for our property was spot on. Mark has a skill when it comes to marketing properties online. Communication was great, even in the evenings when your standard agent would be closed - if there was an update or viewing we would know about it. As such we sold our property within a week of listing online. Spot on - 5* service - thank you Mark

      Mark was incredible
      We can't speak highly enough of Mark Nicholson and his invaluable support during the sale of our property. He has an incredible acumen for selling houses and definitely stands out head and shoulders amongst his estate agent peers. From the initial meeting to sealing the sale Mark never once took his eye off the ball. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond his and our control, our initial buyers fell through. During this extremely stressful time Mark was incredible. His calm demeanour and steadying hand guided us seamlessly through the difficult period. His advice and support was tremendous and his enthusiasm to achieve the sale never waned. He worked tirelessly to ensure we got the right buyer through the door. We would and have recommended Mark to all our friends/family for future house sales.

      Mark can't do enough for you
      Highly recommend Nicholsons Estate Agent! We were passed Marks details from a neighbour who had recently sold their property with him and we are so please they shared it with us. Mark can't do enough for you and has been very informative throughout. In light of recent issues he has been very professional and taken all the correct safety actions required. Nicholsons helped us with a walk round video of the property which is a brilliant way for potential buyers to view the property better. I have also spoke with Richard in the office a couple of times and he was very polite and very friendly.

      honest, professional, reliable, very knowledgeable
      .Mark was recommended to us by a friend. From day one he was honest, professional, reliable, very knowledgeable of the area and we immediately felt we had made the right choice. It had been along time since we had bought/sold a house, the market and the procedures had change an awful lot. He took his time to explain the process and he answered all our questions (and there was a few). Mark did our viewings and have gave us all the feedback. It has been eventful and I am really pleased we choice to use Nicholsons I would highly recommend them to anybody.
