House Appraisal Tips

October 7, 2008 at 7:00 am Leave a comment

Anyone who is looking to place their home on the real estate market will likely need to make some improvements on their property before they sell. A home valuation is needed when preparing to sell a home so buyers can have an estimated price in order to compare your home with others.

Here are a couple of house appraisal tips:

  • Make your home the stand out in your area. Do some landscaping and pick up items in your yard. Your home should give a sense of maintenance which surpasses other homes in the neighborhood.
  • Fix any inside damage. The interior condition of your home is important. Repair holes in the walls, fix broken windows, etc. Making interior fixes will immediately increase a home’s value in the eyes of an appraiser.
  • Decorations can be nice. If the paint on your walls is losing its color, then repaint the walls. Paying a little bit of money for some paint could lead to more money from a sale because less work will be needed by the home buyer.
  • Research the price of homes sold in your area. Have a good idea what fair price of your home should amount to. When a real estate agent then gives you a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA), you will want to be able to see that it is accurate. That way, you can ask questions if the result is lower than you expected.
