The most accurate online property valuation ever

Bringing agents and customers together for a lifetime

SmartVal is a unique real-time online property valuation tool that blends technology with data and something that’s missing from algorithm-generated valuations: local agent expertise.

With SmartVal, customers can request an online valuation of their home – from real agents – delivered in just 15 minutes.

    The power of SmartVal is free

  • Easy and flexible

    SmartVal is an easy way for you to engage with homeowners looking for an accurate valuation of their home, so you can encourage them to take the next step of an in-person agent appraisal.

  • Free and fair to all agents

    SmartVal gives vendors and landlords access to a wider choice of available local agents. And because SmartVal is free, your availability and positioning doesn't depend on having to pay.

  • Connect directly with homeowners

    Agents engage directly with every potential vendor and landlord who requests a SmartVal. So homeowners can bypass inaccurate digital estimates which are based on historical data stored in the cloud and have no agent input at all.

SmartVal in action

  • 01

    A customer requests a SmartVal

    They enter property details (type, number and condition of rooms plus photos) and choose up to 3 agents who are live and online.

  • 02

    The clock starts ticking!

    Chosen agents have 15 minutes to accept a SmartVal request. The customer can see everything as it happens. It’s all interactive. Once accepted, each agent has 15 minutes to deliver the valuation.

  • 03

    Agents work their magic

    Agents receive property details, photos and Boomin data including sold prices, comparable live listings and a demand summary showing recent searches matching the property.

  • 04

    The SmartVal is submitted

    The agent enters a minimum, maximum and suggested market price and the customer is notified when the SmartVal is submitted. Contact details are then exchanged to enable a follow-up.

Getting started is easy

While digital valuations based on algorithms serve a purpose, they are no match for a real agent.

We understand the value agents add. With SmartVal you can provide fast, accurate online property valuations and encourage customers to take the next step with you.

Exclusive to Boomin agents, it's easy to get started as shown in this video.

Once you're set up as someone who can do SmartVals for your branch you'll automatically appear 'live and visible' to customers between 9am – 5.30pm Monday to Saturday. However, you can ‘toggle’ yourself on after 5.30pm up to 10pm 7 days a week to capture valuation requests outside normal business hours. You can also switch yourself on and off at any time between 9am - 10pm to suit your schedule.

You can simply click a button to switch yourself on or off at any time during the day up to 10pm, when you will be automatically switched off until 9am the next morning.

You can set any of your branch staff as eligible to accept SmartVals. When they are set to ‘live’ status, and you have added their mobile numbers, all eligible agents are notified by SMS and email as soon as a SmartVal request is received – and the first agent to accept the request within 15 minutes will be allocated the valuation task.

No. Customers can only receive a maximum of 3 completed SmartVals for the same property in any 3-month period. If they have multiple properties, then they can receive 3 completed SmartVals for each property in any 3-month period.

No. A branch can only accept and work on one SmartVal for sales and one SmartVal for lettings at any point in time. Your branch will not be visible as 'live' for SmartVal requests until you submit the type of valuation you are working on. So if you are working on a sales SmartVal, your branch will appear as visible for lettings SmartVals only and vice versa. If you are working on both a sales and letting SmartVal at the same time then your branch will not appear as visible until you complete and submit the SmartVals.

Absolutely not. SmartVals will enable agents to create new customer relationships earlier, encourage customers to enter the market because you’ve sent them an accurate valuation, and generate follow-up living room appraisals for you – leading to more instructions.

In their property hub on Boomin. They will see your brand and the price range and marketing price you have set for the property. They will also be encouraged to book a living room valuation with you through the click of a button.

Yes. You can be available from any location, up to 10pm 7 days a week and can switch yourself on and off to suit your schedule.
