As a home seller, you want to make sure you’re doing everything in your power to ensure a successful appraisal. Unfortunately, most agents take a hands-off approach, leaving the appraiser to their own devices. This is the WRONG WAY.
At No Nonsense Real Estate, we believe in being proactive and providing the appraiser with as much insight and logic as possible. This includes providing a list of all the upgrades within the home that may not be visible during a walk-through, documentation of recent comps used to support the list price and contract price, and sharing insight into how the market responded to your home.
It’s important to remember that the appraiser will ultimately do what they think is best, but providing them with additional information never hurts. In fact, most appraisers appreciate it.
Don’t settle for a lackluster appraisal. Require your agent to be proactive and provide the appraiser with all the necessary information. At No Nonsense Real Estate, we not only provide this information, but we also meet the appraiser on-site at the home.
Remember, this is part of your listing realtor’s job. Don’t be afraid to require a No Nonsense approach
