Evaluate: How to value a property

Back to all Evaluate tutorials

PropertyData's Automated Valuation Model (AVM) makes it easy to quickly value any urban or suburban property in England or Wales.

Visit our Valuation tool in the Evaluate menu to get started, and select the 'House / flat' option:

To value a house or flat, you need to enter the full postcode plus eight further required data points:

Our AVM makes good use of our class-leading £/sqft data, which is why entering the property's internal floor area accurately is required.

If you don't know the internal area, try looking it up using our Internal Area Lookup tool, also in the Evaluate section.

Once you've entered all the fields, click 'Value property' and after a short wait you'll get your valuation.

At the top you'll see a summary of the inputs you provided.

Next the important bit – a sale valuation on the left (with the margin of error shown below), and a rental valuation on the right (with the representative rental yield shown below).

Following these headline figures, we'll explain in more detail some of the data behind your valuation, for example asking price comparables for properties with the same number of bedrooms and type, or £/sqft comparables from recently sold properties of a similar size in the area.

For each of these sections, you'll see a map with the data points on the left, and a table with the address, price, distance and a link to further details on the right.

Right at the bottom of your valuation, you'll find a summary of a few further factors that we have taken into consideration.

Looking back at the top of the your valuation, there are some further actions you can take.

You can go back and adjust your inputs or download the valuation as a PDF. Subscribers on the unlimited 'Max' plan can make these PDFs branded with the logo and primary colour – great for presenting to potential investors or lenders.

In the actions bar you can also jump to analyse the area in our Local Data tool, or the plot in the Plot Map tool, or use the 'Time Machine' function to see what the valuation of this property would have been in any previous year back to 1973.
