Our desktop valuations are performed by Chartered Surveyors who are RICS Registered Valuers. They utilise our software to review all outside imagery (streetview, satellite), inside imagery (photographic, video), and hard data points available. We have a full and comprehensive database of comparable transactions, including properties currently on the market for sale and those which are sale agreed.
Industry methods for valuing a home include desktop, drive-by and full visit valuations. We recommend the instructing party establish which valuation method is prudent for their purposes. If the RICS surveyor cannot establish a reasonable assessment of the property by means of a desktop valuation, we will recommend a partner surveyor who can perform a drive-by or full visit valuation, or issue the instructing party a full refund within 48 hours.
We only value residential properties with a desktop valuation under 500 sqm.
