We carry out in depth valuations for a range of purposes such as sales valuations, tax, probate, property consultancy or the fair deal (nursing home) scheme for example.
We utilise a variety of methods to calculate a value including residual, comparable, investment and repayment methods. Our valuations are designed with one purpose in mind – a clear and concise valuation of your property for the purpose intended.
We charge a low flat fee for valuations of most properties which includes semi-detached, detached, townhouses, apartments and cottages.
Our area of operations covers Cork City, Midleton, Youghal and the general East Cork and West Waterford areas. We are happily subscribed to the Code of Practise for Estate Agents and regulated by the Property Services Regulatory Authority
What’s Involved in a Valuation?
After you’ve contacted us, we will call to view the property at a time that suits you. We will require access to the interior of the property to take measurements, details and pictures if necessary. If the valuation is for a parcel of land, site maps will be required. If you are unsure of the title of your property (e.g. freehold, leasehold, etc.), please ask your solicitor to check your title deeds for you. Some questions we might ask include;
– When was the property built?
– What type of construction?
– Are you located in a flood area?
– Do any rights of way exist on your property?
– Are you aware of any issues that may affect the value of the property – e.g a claim by a 3rd party on your property for instance
A valuation inspection usually takes about an hour and a report is compiled for the client, usually within 48 hours ensuring a quick turnaround time for our customers.
If you have any queries on the valuation process, please feel free to contact us at any time.
