There is a lot you can’t control when it comes to an appraisal of your home. You obviously can’t influence the primary factors, such as suburb location and the value of nearby or similar properties, but you can make a few improvements that will give off a favourable impression. As the regional real estate specialists, Granger Clark know how to get the best out of properties for sale in Perth and this includes making them shine on appraisal day. Follow these few tips and your appraisal value may be that little bit better.
Carry out Repairs
If you’ve got a long list of odd jobs, getting them done before your appraiser arrives will likely boost the value of any house for sale in Marangaroo, Aveley or beyond. Flaking paint, dripping taps and plastering irregularities are as easy to fix as they are obvious flaws in the eyes of an appraiser. Prioritise the most noticeable repair work, but remember that an appraisal inspection is generally fairly detailed. Ticking these jobs off your to do list will help make a great impression.
Tend to the Garden
Your front yard is one of the first aspects of a house for sale in Landsdale WA, or elsewhere in the state, that an appraiser will notice on inspection day. A neatly trimmed hedge, mowed lawns and a weed-free garden will get the day off to a positive start. This tidiness also extends to the other exterior areas of your property. Sweep any paths, decks or patios, remove any clutter and give the outside of your home a wash.
This is obvious, but vitally important. A clean house is significantly more appealing than a dirty one and can make a big difference to your appraisal value. Vacuum, dust, mop and do anything else in your power to get every surface spotless.
Keep Pets Away
Few things spoil an otherwise good appraisal like an aggressive or annoying pets at houses for sale in Ellenbrook, Henley Brook or other areas of Perth. Consider sending your dog or cat to a sitter for the day, or lock them up during the appraisal. It’s only for a few hours, but will help the day run smoothly.
Ensure you are a welcoming and gracious host. Answer your appraiser’s questions candidly, save your own till after their inspection and do what you can to ensure they have a pleasant time.
