Putting a value on your property – Market appraisal

As your advisor, it is important that we get to know you and get a solid understanding of what is important to you. The first step is to arrange an initial appointment and talk about the method of sale. During our first visit to your property, we will complete a market appraisal valuation. We will review your property comprehensively, outline the methods of sale open to you and give you an initial overview of the sales process and an indication of the current market value of your home. In advance of this valuation, it is a good idea to make a note of the many questions you will have, and we hope the remainder of this guide will help you gather your thoughts.

How we can help

We can arrange a free, no obligation market appraisal from our office in Cavan. You can organise this by dropping into our office on College St, telephoning on 049-4380038, sending an email to or visiting or website to book a free valuation.

Once Declan has met with you and completed his initial inspection of your property, we consider all aspects of the property and recent comparable sales in your area to provide you with an Advised Market Value (AMV).

At this point, we will also discuss marketing strategy and create an individually tailored marketing package for your property. We also appreciate how important it is that you fully understand the nature of any fees in advance of the process. The sales fee or agent’s fee is the commission your sales agent will earn from the proceeds of the sale. In most cases this will be a percentage of the selling price.
