Joseph Mignone Delaware: Ways To Improve Your Home Appraisal

As a Certified New Jersey Residential Appraiser, Joseph Mignone Delaware recognizes that homeowners will generally want to use their appraisals to ensure they can ask for the highest prices possible when selling their homes. There are a number of fairly simple things that people can do to ensure their appraisals are improved, including all of the following.

Renovate Effectively

Having an outdated kitchen or bathroom can have a remarkable effect on your final appraisal, so consider renovating any spaces that you don’t believe are being used to their full potential. Even simple things, like installing wood flooring and working on the garden to make it more appealing, can drive up the appraisal markedly.

Document Everything

If you have put money into the house, it is important to maintain a record of everything that you have spent so that you can show it to your appraiser. Structural improvements are always a bonus, as this is an area where your house could be marked down in the appraisal. Keep all of your receipts and consider taking before and after photos to show the appraiser what work has been done.

Give The Appraiser Some Space

While professional appraisers, like Joseph Mignone Delaware, should not allow their personal feelings to be involved in their appraisals, some may end up subconsciously marking a property down because the owner is crowding them during the appraisal. Be communicative and highlight important positives, but also give your appraiser the space needed to do the job. Furthermore, by harrying your appraiser, you will make them suspicious about potential problems with the property.
