What was that Appraiser thinking?

So what is the Appraiser, Real Estate Agent, and Buyer thinking?

One of my clients sent me the link for this appraiser info.  I thought it well worth sharing.  Click below for a great Video from one Appraisers perspective.

Inside the Mind of an Appraiser

As Real Estate Agents, we work hard to help our clients prepare their home for the market.  Sometimes sellers take our advice, sometimes they don't, and sometimes they just don't have the "know how" or finances to do what needs to be done.

In today's market, it's more important than ever for sellers to get their home ready for the market.  They need to have a Professional Real Estate Agent who is in touch with the current market trends guide them through the ins and outs of getting their home ready for the market.  There are some upgrades/repairs that are worth the time and investment and others that aren't.

Fortunately, if we're ever in doubt, we have excellent appraisers in our area with whom we have professional relationships with and can call to ask questions.

One thing remains true, kitchens and baths are still the best investments so long as they're in line with their neighborhood and price range. 

Kitchen

The first view potential BUYERS, Real Estate Agents, Appraisers and others have of a sellers home is the outside.  It's important the home have great curb appeal.  Repairs are almost always necessary.  De-cluttering and cleaning is essential!  In this market the listing needs to look better than the competition.

Cluttered Home

So, let's keep in mind, the opinion of others does count when it comes to selling homes.
