Should I be worried about getting my home appraised? The home appraiser is your liaison with your financial company and the value of your home. They go through schooling and are licensed by the state. They verify the value of your home. The appraisal can affect the terms for your loan! Here are some things to keep in mind when getting your home built.
Things to Consider When Getting an Appraisal
Zillow tells us to determine the value of the home, the appraiser will look at the size and type of the home and lot, the features of the home and property and the overall real estate market in the area (what are similar homes selling for?), location to schools as well as shopping. The appraiser is trying to determine the fair market value for your home! When meeting with our home consultant you should consider whether your home and options match your neighborhood?
Size does matter – While keeping in mind homes in your area, the items that add to and increase the value of your home are things like square footage and the number of bathrooms & bedrooms. A garage is also very important in your appraisal! Reality Homes can customize your home to help in your appraisal.
What might surprise you is that the materials or products you use in your home such as the type of flooring as well your choice of counter top does not necessarily affect the value! Those items can be changed, the floor plan or location cannot!
