How To Prepare For Your Appraisal
Your Real Estate appraisal is one of the most important part of the whole transaction. Many feel that after the contract is signed and the option period has expired they can sit back and relax or start packing until closing. Which, in par,t is a true statement, BUT remember you will want the appraiser to appraise your home for at least the sales price if not a little more. You may still start packing your belongings, but you will need to make sure that you stack those boxes NEATLY in the garage out of the way. Do not leave stacks of packing paper or empty boxes laying around.
The appraiser should give you at least 24 hours notice of the inspection. In that time you will need to clean your home like the Pope is coming for a visit. Have the home smelling good and all the shades open to let in as much light as possible. This is the most important showing. Do all you can to impress him.
My final and best tip. Leave the house while the appraiser is there. First off, no one wants someone looking over their should while they work. Secondly, you don't want to accidentally say something that might bring the value down.
