The E-Valuation

Pioneering negotiation and valuation

Give yourself the edge with bespoke automated valuation techniques and a 10 year market price analysis, displaying whether the vendor has a mortgage on the property and their likely overall financial situation, plus much more; the e-valuation shows a wealth of data to help the home buyer construct the most realistic and effective offering strategy.

What makes Buyers Edge different from jumping on to Rightmove or Zoopla and using their automated valuation models (AVMs) or researching market price? We are not advocating not doing this because we do it too, its an important part of due diligence, offer preparation and gaining peace of mind, there are a lot of free websites all offering the same kind of thing in a slightly different way, especially when it comes to automated valuation models… At Buyers Edge we do things differently solely to help the buyer, we take the AVMs the professionals use and look for inconsistency, unknowns and deviation to help you, our customer, think about valuation in a different way. What if Zoopla’s AVM confirmed that the house you are looking at offering on or viewing is being marketed at the correct price? Is that enough? What if there was a way to know that when the Agent, seller and surveyor put a price on the property that all three of them are actually unsure of the market price? What if the market price is based on pure emotion? What if the AVMs that are being used are not accurate and to what extent? What if you knew all of this upfront before deciding to offer on a property? You can be sure the agent will be sure of the price when you are negotiating with them.

How do estate agents decide on the market price of a property? What does a lender based valuation look like in comparison to market valuation? Did you know banks and lenders use a completely different set of calculations to value property compared to an estate agent? Will you get a mortgage on the property based on your offer? How much ’emotion’ has driven the price compared to hard facts and comparable properties? What does the Vendors financial situation look like? Does the vendor have a mortgage to pay down from the sale? Is there potential scope to be aggressive in your offers or is the vendor going to try and hold on to every last pound? What has happened to the market price of the property over the last ten years?

All of this information appears in our report with guidance on how to best utilise the results and how to best negotiate. When you make an offer, ‘going in blind’, you are at the mercy of what the estate agent tells you, they work for the vendor and have every interest in negotiating as much as possible for them. Buyers Edge have been using this report successfully for many years as part of our own negotiating strategy (we use it for every consultation and negotiation we undertake for our clients), we have proven the strong relationships between lower than market price offer acceptance and the vendor insights/automated valuation techniques we give access to.

By partnering with a marketing data specialist company (CACI), that also supplies information to various local authorities and Government, Buyers Edge are able to display how the financials of households look in a certain postcode. Companies use this information when deciding on marketing strategy, but Buyers Edge have been using this data as part of our negotiatioan strategy for years. It is really helpful way of understanding the situation of the vendor and there is a very clear relationship between lower than asking price offer acceptance and positive vendor financials, Imagine knowing if the the seller did not have a mortgage on their property and £25,000 of savings in the bank with no debt?  Professional investors and acquisition companies also utilise this same report to setup the perfect offer/entry price. It is good practice to understand who you are potentially dealing with, don’t go in blind, arm yourself with the facts and negotiate as a professional with upfront knowledge and information. The E-Valuation should be used before offering.

Buyers Edge have a saying “free data can be expensive” which is why for quality data we have to pay our partners for each time we pull the data sets just like the banks, insurance companies and local authorities do, which is why we have to charge our customers to obtain it.  This information can be the difference between saving thousands of pounds at the offer/negotiation stage or paying the full price!
