Before you have your house appraised, its a good idea to create a list of any improvements you’ve made to the home. List them by date and include contact information for the contractor who did the work. The DiMora Team are real estate experts in the Northville and Novi neighborhoods and its also smart to fix anything around the house that will age the home in the eyes of the appraiser. For example, say you have a cracked window, thread-bare carpet, some tiles falling off the shower surround, vinyl torn in the laundry room, these items could still add up to an overall average condition rating as the home is still habitable, however your effective age will be higher resulting in comparables being utilized which will have the same effective age and resulting lower value.

While some things impact a home’s value more than others, the bottom line is that the process can vary by appraiser. Anything you can do to make your house look the best has the potential to streamline the appraisal process and increase the value of your home. Plus, these improvements you make prior to listing your home will only help increase the number of potential buyers.
