Using the office of National statistics, I can usually project a first "base" valuation of what your property should be worth based on the price you paid for it, the date your purchased it and the improvements you have made.
Based on pure variations between 2016 and now, your property would be worth around 25% more if it was in the same condition, meaning £330,000. But you have totally renovated and improved the property so this approach is not good enough.
I usually look at comparable properties sold recently in the area rather than the ones currently on the market as they tend to be overpriced. However there is nothing to compare your house with in Clacton/Holland-on-sea so I must use other angles...
Completed in June 2021 for £435,000, this 3 bedroom semi-detached is smaller than yours but on a much larger plot. Offer was probably accepted in around March 2021 and I would say that the market has gone up another 10% since. Meaning a price of around £475,000 now
Currently on the market
What are the properties that you would be competing against?
Very recently put on the market, this 3 bed semi at £450,000 is smaller than yours and appears to me as overpriced. The market lacks properties and buyers may still snap it. If they don't after this weekend, it is a clear sign it is overpriced. I think it is £25,000 overpriced at least.
Minimum price: £425,000
Max valuation: £475,000
Would you go on the market now, I would say that £450,000 would be the price to use as a marketing price. From that level you may get a bit more or a bit less. Arguably we could market it as a 4 bedroom as per its current use. With only one bathroom it might appear over priced. Building on top of the garage may well bring the property closer to a value of £500,000 but I feel that the semi-detached aspect may well limit the price to that level.
