Property Valuation Services for Real Estate and Development: Your Roadmap to a Fair Price


Are you a property developer or a housing association in the UK, grappling with the complexities of real estate valuation? Determining the value of a property accurately is crucial, and at ET Surveyors and Valuers, we provide both informal (non-Red Book) and formal (Red Book) valuation services, designed to meet your specific needs.

The Importance of Accurate Valuation

Knowing the accurate value of your property can:

  • Give you a competitive edge in the market
  • Guide you in the right direction during negotiations
  • Help you make informed financial decisions

Informal Valuation vs Formal Valuation: What’s the Difference?

When it comes to real estate valuation, there are primarily two approaches: Informal Valuation and Formal Valuation.

Informal Valuation (non-Red Book)

Informal valuation, although less rigorous than formal valuation, is cost-effective and quicker, making it a popular choice for many developers and housing associations. This process includes:

  • A basic overview of the property’s features and conditions
  • Estimation of the property’s market value
  • It does not comply with RICS Red Book standards

Formal Valuation (Red Book)

Formal valuation or Red Book valuation is a more detailed process. It complies with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) guidelines, and it is typically used for legal or financial purposes. A formal valuation provides:

  • A comprehensive analysis of the property
  • A precise estimation of the market value
  • Compliance with RICS Red Book standards
