How to Get the Best Appraisal

Many home sellers question what is the best way to improve the look of their home to get the highest appraisal. This can be a big issue since appraisals have been getting a lot of attention recently, and a very low appraisal can ruin the sale of a home.

There are people who feel that making a last-minute effort to clean up a home will sway the decision of an appraiser to give the home a higher value. What really is most important in determining the value of a home is the sales prices of recently sold nearby comparable homes. Other factors that are considered are the size of the house and lot, the age and condition of the property as well as the major amenities in the home.

In summary, if your house has major issues like holes in the walls or leaky plumbing, an appraiser will notice this before dirty windows or walls. Avoid completing home repairs in a short period of time before the arrival of an appraiser. Plan ahead and keep your home well-maintained throughout the time you are living there.
