What To Expect

Eastern KY Home Appraisal

Having your home appraised might seem daunting, even scary, especially if you have never gone through a real estate appraisal before. Preparing for an appraiser and knowing what they will look for when they arrive not only can ease your concern, but it also help you prepare your home for the home or land appraisal. Even a minimal amount of effort can have a huge impact on your home or lands value, which can increase your equity or boost the return on your investment if your intentions are to sell.

Structure: Before the appraiser even enters your home, they will check out the structure, checking the foundation, siding and roofing to determine the material, quality and condition of each. The real estate appraiser also will look for damage or defects around the exterior of your home. Prefab homes will lose value here, as they normally are built with low-quality materials. Conversely, custom-built homes will gain value because they usually are made with much higher-quality materials and are unique. This adds even more to the home's overall value.

Eastern KY Home Appraisal Interior: Inside your home, they will look for the essentials that make up a house, such as the material and quality of the walls and inside roof, flooring type and its condition, and the number, type and quality of windows and doors. The Eastern Ky Home Appraiser will also look for permanent fixtures, including appliances, plumbing and lighting, and note any defects or damage they find.

So focus your time, attention and money on checking what the appraiser will look at. The appraiser will ignore most anything that you would normally take with you when you move out.

Amenities: The amenities in your home will have a significant impact on the home appraisal. The home appraiser will note what features your house has and doesn't. These include central air conditioning, type of heating, smoke detectors and even the garage. If your home lacks these features, the appraisal will come in slightly less. They will look for additional features as well, such as solar panels, a security system and maybe even a fireplace. And they'll consider outdoor amenities, such as an a pool.
