The Value Of Your Home Relating To Damage

Mar 16, 2008
House appraisals can be good or bad depending on how good a home has been maintained. If you are putting your home on the selling market, you will want the appraisal to be as large as it can be. If you are getting a residence looked over because you are thinking of buying it, a good appraisal is wonderful because the living space is probably in pretty good shape. If it appraises not so good, it could be acquired cheaper, but it might also mean it needs fixing up.

When you are tryeing to sell your home, all potential buyers will want to have it checked out. The most important thing to do is be certain it is in the best shape it can be before it is examined. A number of issues can change inspections more than others. Appearance issues like needing for paint inside or outside can make your living space look less appealing, but many home purchasers will repaint to their own style anyway. The need for painting might not diminish your residences value too much.

One major thing that can diminish your appraisal is water issues. Anywhere there is proof of water issues inside or outside a home it should be taken care of before the appraisal. A small leak from a water source that has not been remedied makes an appraiser inspect closer for evidence of mold, wood, or sheet rock damage.

Loose tiles, raised spots, and soft spots on a floor could also be indications of current or past water issues. This should also cause concerns to an inspector about water damage underneath the floor covering that can not be seen. It might indicate harmed wood or mold too. Any places that have damage like this have to be fixed before an examination as well.

The basement and attic are other spaces that can have water problems and an appraiser will inspect these areas thoroughly. When a basement is damp or has water in it, it is not recommended to finish it out until the problem is taken care of and it is a perfect place for mold to start. An attic that has water damage is normally due to a leaky roof or gutter system. This may be very costly to repair also.

The smartest way to make the most of your appraisal is to take care of as many minor problems that you can yourself to save money because if you have attic or roof damage, those damages may have to be taken care of by a professional before you can sell your home.
