The Land Registry and the Registers of Scotland can be used by anyone so you no longer need to to approach estate agents for this valuable information.

Be aware that it takes three months for sold homes to appear in searches.

You can also use the Land Registry service to get an overview of the housing market in both your area and nationally.

Its UK House Price Index gives average house prices by country and region, further breaking them down into different property types.

Use the service to find out how many properties are changing hands in your area, and how much for.

Factors to consider when researching "How much is my house worth?"

  • Location – Some roads within an area could be more desirable than others and even one end of a road might be more desirable than the other.
  • The condition of your house - If your house is in need of repair and modernisation, don’t compare it with a house that has been fully refurbished.
  • The size and layout of the house. Compare like with like. Bear in mind that some properties on your street may have been extended out the back or into the loft.
  • Crime rates – is the crime rate in your area worse or better than surrounding areas?
  • Is there a flood risk? You can obtain the flooding history of a property from the Environment Agency or check if a property is in a flood risk location.
  • School catchment areas. Compare your property with houses that are in the same school catchment area.
  • Distance to transport links.
  • Other factors like the state of wiring, boiler, damp and plumbing problems can also affect the value.

How can I add value to my property?

There are a number of things you can do to try to add value to your property. Keep in mind though that some cosmetic changes won’t necessarily add value to your home, they may simply make it easier to sell.
  • Add a new kitchen or bathroom. 
  • Create more light. Clever lighting can make your home look a lot more spacious and inviting. 
  • A home extension will often add the most value although this is also the most costly option.
  • You can convert the loft or cellar for additional space, without having to extend.
  • If your garage isn’t being used to park a car, it could be converted into additional living space.
  • Renovate the outside of the property to make it more presentable.


An agent valuation is a valuation of your home conducted by an estate agent. They will inspect your home and then give you a current valuation.

You will not be charged for an agent valuation. It is free.

The agent will carry out an inspection of your property and use their local housing market knowledge to provide you with an estimated value.

Approach three to four agents to get a mix of opinion. You are not obliged to use any of them to sell your property.

You can still approach an estate agent even if you are not sure you will be selling your property. Or you can get a good indication of your home’s worth using Propillo’s House Price Calculator above and carrying out some basic research yourself

No, the Land Registry service is free and available to all.
