How to sell your home in Scotland: where to start
What are the first steps to selling your home?
Find out how much your home is worth
The first step to selling your house or flat is to get a property valuation. This is an estimate of the current market value of your home by a property expert. It’s based on several factors, including property size, condition, fittings, age, fixtures, layout and design. External factors may also be included, such as parking, ease of vehicle access and proximity to schools. This valuation will give you a good idea of what your home is likely to sell for.
How to get a property valuation
To get a property valuation, you’ll need to invite one or more selling agents out to your house. Each selling agent will review the factors mentioned above and provide you with an estimated value of your property.
