The First sight. Appraisers can hack of hundreds, even thousands, of dollars from your home’s value just for having an unkempt yard.
Small Subliminals. Palmisano said you don’t have to redo the entire kitchen. Adding a new faucet can be considered an update and it adds value.
Address the mess. Clutter isn’t just an eyesore; it costs money too. Experts say a clean, clutter-free house can appraise 10 percent higher than the exact same messy home.
Out With the Old, In With the New. Palmisano said an old TV can make an entire room look dated.
The Naked Truth. Palmisano said carpet on top of carpet will read like there’s a stain. You don’t want to give the appraiser the impression that you’re hiding something.
Remove Excess Furniture. Maximize your space and how it’s perceived. The less furniture you have in a room, the larger the space looks.
Everything in Your Home Should Work. If something doesn’t work properly, replace it, fix it or remove it. When people come to see your home – buyers and appraisers – it can be hands on. If there is a knob that is broken or loose, fix it.
Show Property in Best Light. If there is a feature in your home that is special, point it out. Keep the door open to a phenomenal closet before the appraiser comes.
