HI most estate agents will do free valuation (just don't tell them why you want it!!)
You need to remember the valuation needs to reflect the cost of building a new property similar to yours as opposed to current selling prices.
Or you could go with a house insurance company that does not need the vale of your house..
We are with Intasure in the UK and the The Buildings are covered for 1 million pounds, with an excess of 250 pounds.
Look them up on the internet, or search for Intasure on this group, as there is a recent thread about them..
But what it's worth and the cost of rebuilding it will be different. I see someone has suggested Intasure - suggest you give them a call.
My apologies for the delay in responding. Thank you all very much for your advice. Much appreciated.
Nigel. It's been quite some time since I rambled (except on here of course! ) However, you and I had a couple of interesting conversations on past meets. I apologise for not revealing my (not) true identity. But, here's a clue. I was usually the person mostly at the back but who invariably won the final - Keo - leg. Very happy rambling to yourself and Mrs H.
I'm considering switching house insurance providers.
Short of trawling through the various estate agent sites and trying to work it out for myself, is there a way of getting my property valued, without inflicting 5% excitement on somebody?
I got two quotes in July, from UK companies.
Intersure, who we were with for a number of years, but the premiums started to rocket each year, quoted £290 (1 millions buildings cover)
We switched to insuranceforholidayhomes.co.uk a couple of years ago, and this years premium dropped slightly to £130 (1 million buildings cover)
Just to give an idea though.
We signed up to GIC from when we took possession of the house in 2004. House + contents. At that stage it was costing us €1000+ a year. When we moved in to live full time in 2012 they dropped it to about €800. As always with these things it was direct debit momentum. Time now though to move on. Should of course have done it years ago.
