Questions to include on your Property evaluation survey

1. Agent Information

This information will help us understand more about the real estate agent filling the form and their professional background.

  • What is your name?
  • What is your email address?
  • Which real estate agency are you affiliated with?
  • How many years of experience do you have in real estate?

2. Property Details

This section focuses on gathering basic information about the property to be evaluated.

  • What is the address of the property?
  • What is the type of the property? (Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Agricultural)
  • How many bedrooms does the property have?
  • How many bathrooms does the property have?
  • What is the total area of the property in square feet?

3. Property Condition

The aim here is to understand the current condition of the property which can greatly affect its value.

  • How would you rate the overall condition of the property? (Poor, Fair, Good, Excellent)
  • Has the property been renovated recently? (Yes, No)
  • If yes, please specify what changes have been made.
  • Are there any known issues or damages to the property? (Yes, No)
  • If yes, please describe the issues or damages.

Questions regarding renovation and damages are crucial as they can considerably influence the property's value. They provide in-depth insight into any recent improvements or existing problems that need to be addressed.

4. Property Features

This section will help identify unique features of the property that could potentially increase its value.

  • Does the property have a backyard? (Yes, No)
  • Does the property have a swimming pool? (Yes, No)
  • Does the property have a garage? If yes, how many cars can it accommodate?
  • Please list any additional features the property has.

5. Local Amenities and Environment

Understanding the local area and its amenities can significantly impact the property's desirability and value.

  • How would you rate the property's location? (Poor, Fair, Good, Excellent)
  • How close is the property to essential amenities like schools, hospitals, shopping centers etc.? (Very Close, Reasonably Close, Far, Very Far)
  • How would you describe the neighborhood?

The questions about local amenities and the neighborhood are important as they provide context about the property's location, which is a key factor in real estate evaluation.

Things to consider

  1. Simplicity and Clarity - Make sure the form is easy to understand and complete. Avoid industry jargon where possible and provide clear instructions for each question.
  2. Relevance of Questions - Only include questions that are pertinent to the property evaluation. Irrelevant questions can make the form longer and more time-consuming to fill out.
  3. Use of Conditional Logic - This is a feature that allows you to show or hide questions based on the responses to previous questions. For example, the question about renovations should only appear if the respondent answers "Yes" to the question "Has the property been renovated recently?"
  4. Mobile Friendliness - Ensure the form is easy to fill out on mobile devices. Many real estate agents are constantly on the go and would appreciate the ability to complete the survey on their phone or tablet.
  5. Testing the Form - Before officially launching the form, test it thoroughly. Make sure all the questions appear as they should, the conditional logic works correctly, and the form is user-friendly.
  6. Data Protection - As you will be collecting potentially sensitive information, ensure your form adheres to data protection laws and regulations. Inform the respondents how their data will be used and stored.
  7. Feedback Option - Include a section at the end of the form where respondents can provide feedback. This will help you make continuous improvements to the form.
