ARE YOU IN THE PROCESS OF SELLING YOUR HOME?
If so, then your realtor has probably told you the buyer’s lender will order an appraisal of your home to secure financing. We’d all rather NOT have a stranger poking around our home. But if you want your buyer to PAY YOU, then that buyer will probably need financing. So the lender will require an appraisal to determine your home’s fair market value and determine how much of the purchase price the lender will actually finance. Since there’s no getting around it, let’s make the best of it!
HOW TO PREPARE FOR AN APPRAISAL!
Did you know a homeowner can actually do some things to boost the home’s value? Yes, a homeowner can and should PREPARE FOR THE APPRAISAL, just like he prepares for the sale of the home. The appraiser can just show up and appraise your residence ‘as is’. But with the current economy being so low, a wise homeowner will do everything possible to show off their home’s good points in hopes of retaining as much value as possible.
