AccuVal should be able to provide ballpark accuracy for the vast majority of properties. However, there are things that AccuVal cannot
account for, as they require expert opinion. For example:
The presence of unwanted moisture in the structure of a building, either the result of intrusion from outside or condensation
from within the structure.
Subsidence occurs when the ground under your home collapses or sinks lower, taking some of the building's foundations with it.
This puts strain on your home's structure as one side sinks, causing cracks to appear.
Japanese knotweed is a fast-growing and strong clump-forming perennial, with tall, dense annual stems.
The invasive root system and strong growth can damage concrete foundations, buildings, flood defences, roads,
paving, retaining walls and architectural sites.
Properties which are unique, have special architectural or historic interest are generally unsuitable for
automated valuation. Don’t use AccuVal to value Windsor Castle or Buckingham Palace
(though you are welcome to try!)
Unhappy with Zoopla house prices? Accuval won't disappoint
Hometrack (the valuations arm of Zoopla) benchmarks its AVM against “surveyor’s recommended value”. On the other hand,
AccuVal’s accuracy is measured against the actual price paid for over 550K recently sold properties across England and Wales. No cherry-picking!
Nonetheless, even with more strict benchmarking criteria, AccuVal still leads the pack with a comfortable margin.
Uniquely, AccuVal can value any property – real or hypothetical.

Join the rebel
The real estate industry is broken. According to a recent study, estate agents are among the least trusted professionals in the UK, ranking below both lawyers and traffic wardens.
However, there is good news. At REXSMART, we are working towards a solution: a free marketplace that connects sellers with buyers, and everyone in between.
Getting the valuation right is only the first step, and this is what is all about.
The property's overall condition relative to its neighbourhood. For instance, a flat in a new development that's
located in an affluent area is most likely "average" despite being "above average" nationwide. Properties that have been
recently renovated are likely to be "above average" or "exceptional", depending on the level of renovation. Likewise,
properties that need a bit of repair are "below average" while significant repair requirements indicate "poor" condition.
Remember, the condition is a "qualitative" measure that largely depends on how much is spent or to be spent on renovation.
