Any time a home is sold on your block, you’re probably wondering if your home could get the same price. Even if you aren’t putting your home on the block, it is still helpful to know its current value. That can only happen with the help of a certified appraiser. There are steps you can take to improve your home appraisal value. Here’s what you need to do:
List Major Renovations
You don’t need to remodel your kitchen for an appraisal. However, if your kitchen was remodeled since you move in, then this is important information to give to your appraiser. The same can be said for renovations for your bathrooms, closets or backyard. The money you invested in those projects should be reflected back on the value. Make a list of these projects for the appraiser
Before the appraiser comes by to inspect your home, you’ll want to catch up with all those minor repairs on your “to do” list. Although an appraiser isn’t going to go “deep” like an inspector would, they will still notice leaky faucets and doors that don’t close properly. Those kinds of problems can impact your home’s value.
Boost Your Curb Appeal
Are there fresh flowers in the front gardens? Is the lawn mowed? Are the rain gutters clean? These are all things you can do to boost your home’s curb appeal and they are all things that will get noticed by the appraiser. Also, check for any cracks in the walkways or drive ways. Those should be repaired as well.
Junk that is stored neatly on your property is still junk. That could also have an impact on your home’s value. You want to make sure all your storage areas are clear of clutter and well organized. The appraiser will be looking in your closets, too. How much more storage space could you open up if you got rid of the rubbish? This isn’t a task you have to take on by yourself. Junk King Dallas Mid Cities is standing by to offer assistance. That assistance will come from a pair of movers and their big red truck. That’s all you’ll need to clear out those storage areas and make your home more presentable.
