A Real Estate Agent's Secrets to Getting a Great Home Appraisal, Port Jervis, New York

If you want to sell your home for top dollar, the appraisal process is important. The way a professional appraiser values your home affects the way potential buyers will view it and impacts the eventual sale price. According to the real estate experts from ERA Meloi Realty in Port Jervis, NY, there’s a lot homeowners can do to boost the value of their homes in the eyes of an appraiser. 

5 Real Estate Tips To Help You Get The Best Home Appraisal Possible

1. Work On Your Curb Appeal 

First impressions are everything, and an unkempt lawn can start the appraisal process off on the wrong foot. You don’t need elaborate landscaping to up your appraisal amount, but a tidy lawn with a few well-placed trees, flowers, and shrubs can work wonders for your home’s curb appeal. 

2. Clear Away Clutter

There’s no better time to clear out the clutter in your home than before your appraisal. Clean interiors can make your home look larger and more inviting, which is great for the appraisal as well as the actual home selling process. 

3. Do Minor Repairs

4. Update The Finishings

If you want to make your interiors look more modern, replacing a few of the finishings is a great place to start. New bathroom vanities, light fixtures, and faucets can give your home a polished look without breaking the bank. 

5. Keep Track Of Improvements

As you prepare your home for the appraisal, keep track of any improvements you make. When your appraiser begins the process, let them know what you’ve done to update your property and maintain it. Showing you care goes a long way towards a great appraisal!
