Kimbolton Property Valuations, how much is your home worth?

How much is your home worth?

With all of the movement in the property market over the last years it’s no suprise that people are left not knowing what equity they have in their homes and investment properties.

Gatehouse Estates have been active in Selling and Letting property in the Kimbolton area since 1988 and if you are thinking of selling a property in or close to Huntingdon then we would be pleased to provide you with a valuation, free of charge and without obligation.

Our local valuations or market appraisals as they are sometimes called are provided by Phillip Malley. You can call Phillip on 01480 434290 or pop in and see him at 63 Cambridge Street, Godmanchester.

The Valuation is a simple process. We can do a surprising amount of homework before a quick look at the property and discuss the value with you there and then along with a suggested asking price to achieve the best price and other marketing strategies that may help.

PE28, PE29, CB23 or SG19 – Home Insurance

 

How much do you pay for your home insurance?

Well, it seems that if you live in the PE29, CB23 or SG19 postcode areas, you may well be paying less than a lot of people.

In a recent survey home insurance premiums for the three postcodes were all found to be under the national average, ranking 504th, 756th and 967th respectively. That might not sound like anything groundbreaking, but when you consider that there are literally thousands of different postal districts in the country, that’s quite a feat.

Residents of PE29 stand to make the biggest saving, the average quote in this area coming back over 10% cheaper than the national average. Residents of CB23 and SG19 can also expect to be 6-8% better off than most as well.

Unfortunately for PE29’s neighbours in PE28 however, this district’s average claim is more than 6% higher than the national average – although homes in this postcode are more expensive on average (around £40,000 more), and most applications for this area needed around £14,000 more in contents insurance than those in PE29, which would likely explain the difference.

Central Bournemouth is the cheapest place in the UK to buy home insurance according to the survey, done by moneysupermarket.com’s home insurance team, those in the BH2 District spending almost a third of what those in HA7 (Britain’s most expensive home insurance postal district) spend. In fact, just by living in North London, residents can expect to pay around 74% more than the national average, which is £164.

What can you do to decrease your home insurance premiums? Well there are a number of different ways of doing this, ranging from cheap fixes to expensive security systems, but a few things to consider are: 

  • Fit five lever mortice locks and consider changing the locks – if your house has previous owners, you don’t know who might have a key.
  • Fit smoke alarms and give up smoking – both of these things can decrease your premiums by a noticeable amount.
  • Join a neighbourhood watch scheme – this can reduce your premiums by up to 5%
  • Install security lighting and a NACOSS approved alarm – these will also help to slash the cost of your insurance.
