One of the things that you need to do to price your house for sale right is to get a home appraisal. When a professional conducts an appraisal of your property, he inspects that condition of your home to determine what would be the correct selling price for it. Even if the appraiser normally checks things that cannot be changed at that moment, like the number of rooms and the size of the property itself, you can still let the appraiser get a great impression of your home with these suggestions.
- List down all of the things that you have upgraded in your house, like replacing the roof, installing new cabinets and floorings and upgrading appliances. If the appraiser knows about these improvements right away, he can easily determine the value of your property by comparing it to others who have done similar improvements.
- Tidy up your house from top to bottom. De-clutter the surroundings, give the floors a good sweeping or the carpeted surfaces a good vacuuming and bring your garbage outside. On the yard, cut any outlaw grass or shrub, and put garden tools and toys in the garage.
- Take some paint and give some of the walls a bit of sprucing up. There’s no need to paint the whole house; find the surfaces that need it the most and focus on them.
- Be mindful of the parts of the house that need to be fixed. Repair all of the damaged doorknobs and window clasps of the house, the leaky faucets and the cracked tiles in the bathroom.
- Try to determine the selling price of other homes that are the same as yours, and find out the enhancements that they have made to their homes that helped them get this price.
Bear in mind that because your home is a pre-existing property, the appraiser will be using other properties as his basis in assessing your home.
When you invite an appraiser over, it’s like you are having your home assessed by a buyer, so prepare your home to sell. When you show the appraiser your home in its finest form, it’s possible that the he will see that your home will be worth a high
