How it works
The Zoopla site uses an algorithm to work out the approximate value of your property making use of data, most of which is sourced from HM Land Registry. This data has been collected for many years and enables Zoopla to have a reasonable guess at the value of your property today.
It's important to note that online property valuations can be a useful starting point for understanding property values, but they should not be relied upon as the sole basis for making important financial decisions. If you require a precise valuation for legal, financing, or other critical purposes, it's advisable to seek our professional advice.Contact Us

Cons of an online property valuation
Lack of accuracy
Online property valuations rely on algorithms and data inputs, which may not capture all the nuances and unique features of your property. They typically provide estimates based on general market trends and statistical models, leading to potential inaccuracies in valuations.
Online property valuations often have limitations in terms of the factors they consider. They may not take into account specific local market conditions, recent renovations, or other unique aspects that can affect the value of your property. As a result, the estimate may not reflect the true market value accurately.
Inability to assess property condition
Because online property valuation tools primarily rely on publicly available data, such as recent sales prices, market trends, and property size, they cannot assess the condition of your property, including any maintenance or repairs required, which can significantly impact its value.
Lack of human expertise
The expertise and subjective judgment of a professional estate agent who can assess the property's unique features, neighborhood dynamics, and other factors that influence value, cannot be gained by using an online property valuation tool. We humans can provide a more comprehensive and nuanced valuation based on our experience and local market knowledge
