One of the current trends for Ohio real estate appraisal has more to do with expensive homes than moderately priced homes. There are some exceptions to this, but in general, expensive home sales are still lower than average, while the sale of homes less than one hundred thousand dollars is beginning to return to normal level. These and other local trends will affect the kinds of numbers you Ohio real estate appraiser comes up with, so you certainly don’t want to give him or her any reason to decide your home is any lower in value.
One of the things that may disappoint your Ohio home appraiser is the discovery that you have a pool. You may have thought that adding a pool would increase the value of your home, so it may surprise you to discover that in most cases it won’t. The reason for this has to do with the fact that a pool is very hard to get rid of. Thus, if your buyers don’t want it, they have to either fill it in or have it removed, depending on whether it’s an in or above ground pool. Filling it in is a pain in the neck, and removing it can damage the yard for a very long time. Either way, if you don’t have one already, and your motive in doing so is to increase the value of your home, don’t.
Another thing that’s going to disappoint your appraiser is a long list of repairs that still need to be made. Find out what needs to be done, and do the repairs before your appointment. Also, if you don’t have a garage, then you should at least get a covered carport if you have room for one. By avoiding these types of omissions, you should be happy with the results of your appraisal, and ultimately still be able to sell your house, even in Ohio’s recovering market.Tags: Ohio Real Estate Appraiser
