Improve Appraisal Valuation

Tips to Improve Your Appraisal Valuation:

First Sight
Appraisers can take off hundreds and even thousands of dollars from your home value just for having an unkempt yard.

Small Subliminals
You don’t have to redo the entire kitchen. Adding a new faucet can be considered an update that adds value.

Address the Mess
Clutter is not just an eyesore, it costs money, too. Experts say a clean, clutter-free house can appraise 10% higher than the exact same messy house.

Out With the Old; In With the New
An old television can make an entire room look dated.

The Naked Truth
Carpet on top of carpet will appear as if there is a stain. You do not want to give the appraiser the impression that you are hiding something.

Remove Excess Furniture
Maximize your space and how it is perceived. The less furniture you have in a room, the larger the space looks.

Everything in Your Home Should Work
If something does not work properly, replace, fix or remove it. When people come to see your home, whether they are buyers or appraisers, it can be hands-on. If there is a knob that is broken or loose, fix it.

Show Your Property in the Best Light
If there a feature in your home that is special, point it out. Keep the door open to a phenomenal closet before the appraiser arrives.
