The Benefits of having a Home Evaluation

If you would have seen some of the homes that I’ve been through and the potential that they could have you would be amazed. Staging a home has the possibility to increase the home by $10,000 + that is cold hard cash in your pocket. Many home owners can’t visualize the potential that their home holds to very hungry buyers.  You might be wondering at this time “how does having a home evaluation help me sell my home for more”??

First, it provides you with the answer “what is the value of my home”

A real estate agent will compare the subject to similar properties that have sold or are for sale, and that have expired and estimates a house value based on the market comparables. This is the typical approach for most residential properties, in which similar sales are considered and adjustments for differences are made based on market evidence of factors that influence purchase decisions – for example, a updates kitchen compared to an dates kitchen. With this information the real estate agent will be able to give you an accurate estimate what your home is valued at.

Second “How can I increase the value of my home before I place it on the market”

When the real estate agent is in your home they will be able to give you pointers on how to increase the value of the property.   Repainting the walls or kitchen cabinets is a great easy fix to help brighten up the kitchen and the home. Buyers look for flaws to negotiate a lower sale price. That wobbly stair rail may still support you, and the crack in the ceiling plaster may not be structural, but it’ll leave buyers wondering what else is not quite right. No matter how minor the problem, take your toolbox around and start fixing.  Decluttering a home always helps bring the value of the home up by making the home feel much large than it is opening up hallways and front hall entrances.

As a professional realtor I know the benefits of having a Home Evaluation done on your property. A home evaluation done by an expert real estate agent is key to selling your home for more money!!
