My house is valued at £171,000 on Zoopla does that mean I am likely to achieve this price if I sell?

Whilst some of the websites are quite accurate with the prediction of future sale prices, they are only a guide. For an accurate price you are best calling in 3 Local Agents in your area, they will take into account the condition and location with more accuracy.

Property valuation websites are very useful, however they do work from historic house sale data so should be relied upon. Look at similar properties currently for sale, this will give you a closer guide to what your local estate agents will say, and of course the best way is to arrange for estate agents to give you a free no obligation valuation (ask them for a realistic price!).

You may find the following RICS leaflet useful: if you would like me to value your home please let me know (I often do valuations in Bristol) but you are too far away for me to act as a estate agent.
www.localsurveyorsdirect.co.uk are offering a new service to enable the public to obtain quotes from estate agents. Whether there are many Bristol agents using this yet I don't know though.

Honestly...the answer is probably not. Whilst Zoopla is very good, it is still only a piece of software and works on national statistics rather than local knowledge. I have been selling property in your area for 10 years and have had a fair few examples where websites have been a little off the mark.
I take into account condition, location and get to grips with the features of the property and work out how to sell those as benefits and what they are worth to buyers. I also look at buying trends in the market place and the types of buyers we have available and what price they are prepared to pay for types of property. Valuations are normally free, most agents will be happy to visit you at a time to suit you and give their honest opinion.
I hope this helps.
