Why request a property valuation?

Whether you are ready to move now, or thinking about selling your property in the future, we recommend that you arrange an up-to-date property valuation.

Our market appraisals are completely free of charge, and do not oblige you to sell your property with Marchand Petit.


Our Home Valuers are highly experienced. We invest in regular training, because we believe that when you put your house on the market, it is essential that price is set at the right level from the outset.

To give you an accurate and fair house valuation, we evaluate the age, condition and location of your property. We also assess your home relative to other properties within the area, with an understanding of the anticipated level of demand from prospective buyers.

A few words from our customers

“I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you. Peter’s advice on pricing served us well; he clearly knows the market somewhat better than the competition.  Everything was handled with the upmost professionalism and proficiency. If we ever again are in need of estate agent’s services in the area or are in a position to recommend you, I would not hesitate.”

Dartmouth vendor, 2015 

“The team in Totnes were always polite, helpful and dealt with any difficulties or queries we had. If you were not in the office, you gave willingly of your time both during the working week and out of hours, visiting us more than once on your way home. The customer care was far superior to that we experienced at other agents.

Vendor in Totnes, 2015

“We engaged Marchand Petit this year to sell our property after a difficult period of engagement with another agent. From the moment Marchand Petit viewed the property, we were met with high energy and enthusiasm. There was complete honesty from the start. To our delight and surprise by the Friday of the first week we had secured a buyer!

Vendor in Newton Ferrers, 2014

“Thank you for handling the sale of my mother's bungalow. From your original valuation, which we agreed was very realistic, to the final sale, we appreciated the very professional but personal way in which you handled the sale. I will certainly recommend your company to friends in the area and will not hesitate to use your services again in the future.”
