If you are trying to sell your house, then you have undoubtedly thought of having an appraiser come by and take a look. This can sometimes be a good idea, if you know what you are getting yourself into.
As can be expected, they will give you a lot of ideas of how the house could look better and if needed, what work needs to be done in order for it to be habitable. When listening to this, keep an ear open for any suggestions, and wise in any decisions.
Often times, people who do not rehab houses and have never done one in their life, decide to try and do the work themselves. This, can not only hurt you both financially and physically, but can also be emotionally draining. Having a project that you think will never get done, and have that riding on your shoulder every day you wake up.
Knowing the price you want to sell your home on, and the price it can actually sell at, can be two opposing numbers, if the house is in need of some work!
An appraisal will be able to give you the truth on what needs to be done, and how much it would take to do it. Something to always keep in mind, is that an appraisal is often times, no more than an educated guess. Not being able to spend all day thoroughly investigating a problem can ,in itself, lead to a problem.
Getting an appraisal for a house that needs work and one that is ready to be sold on the market, will obviously be very different.
An appraiser will do his research and be able to estimate by what other houses in that same market have sold for.
What Do Appraisers Look At?
A typical Appraiser will look at how many bedrooms and baths the house has. How many stories, finished or unfinished and parts of the house that need work done to them.
After you get an appraisal, you will be able to tell what will need to be done to the property to be able to get it onto the market.
