    Having your home appraised can be a stressful process. A low appraisal can cost you thousands in selling or refinancing your home. There are several things that you cannot change about your property that will play into a home’s value. You cannot easily change the location or size of your home. However, there are some important steps you can take in order to help assure your house gets the maximum value it deserves. Following these ten simple practices before a home appraisal can save you from losing thousands of dollars in the future.

    The first step in raising your properties value is to make repairs before the home appraisal. If you are planning on replacing carpet or fixing a faucet before you start showing a home to buyers, make sure to finish them before the appraisal. A couple hundred dollars in repairs can help assure problems don’t show up on an appraisal report and cost you thousands. The second step you should take is to raise your home’s curb appeal. We all know first impressions are very important, and this truism is very accurate with home appraisals as well. Make sure your lawn is tidy and weed free. Also, assure that your homes paint looks presentable and your yard is free of clutter. The third step is to clean the inside of your home. Make sure each room is clutter free and looks presentable. Get rid of old and worn furniture because old objects can make an entire room seem dated. The next good practice is to make a list of any renovations or improvements done on your home. Having a list of all of these positive features will assure an appraiser does not overlook them. The last tip we will discuss in part one is to secure a set of current blueprints of your home. Having these documents will assist the appraiser in determining the correct dimensions and size of your property.

    These five easy steps will help raise the value of your home during an appraisal. Make sure to tune in for the last 5 steps in part 2!
