147 ticking from valve gear

I have a nice 147 however when the engine is very hot i get a ticking noise that rises and falls with the revs, at idle you cannot hear it
i have had an engineers report from one of the top companies who inspect cars and he said it was either a valve or cam fault but the car is ok to drive
due to lots of reasons the car has been parked and I now am unable to drive it
is it worth me getting this looked at and how much would it cost or shall I sell the car as is
its a 2 litre manual 5 door in red with all new tyres and battery recent cambelt and pump kit fitted and everything else works ok
oh its red and has both keys
what is it liable to be worth given that car prices have gone barking mad
the mileage is 58K
can some one else answer a question where are all the private sellers of cars ?
all the adverts i see are for traders mainly selling from their house and lots of the cars appear to have just been sold where are they getting them to re sell, I would not buy of one of these characters who sells from home due to past experience I would buy
either direct from the owner or from a garage with facilities for service and repair
my daughters peugot 306 came from just such a character and it turned out to have had a nasty accident that was not listed so sold damaged privately
it cost a great deal of money to rectify the continual recurring faults with the suspension and steering
I have had the thing cubed now thank the lord
any help appreciated
