Professional Home Appraisal Services for All Needs
Find out the true value of a property by working with Fitch Appraisals. Our company is based in Kansas City, Missouri, and serves clients from all throughout the surrounding area. When you need a home appraisal or other property appraisal services, our experts are here to help. We provide inspections and valuations for homes that are for sale by owner, as well as properties that are represented by an outside party.
The purpose of a house appraisal is to make an estimate of the fair market value of a home that is as unbiased as possible. This is necessary in order to receive a loan and is typically a part of the selling process as well.
In order to determine the fair market value of the property, a home appraisal may include everything from the home’s current condition and its location to sales information for similar houses and insight into how the neighborhood impacts the value. Our team strives to provide the most accurate valuations possible by talking into account as many relevant factors as we can and examining them objectively.
What Impacts Your House Appraisal Value
When you are putting your home on the market, it is important to aim for the highest house appraisal value possible while still remaining true to the reality of your property. Fortunately, there are some ways you can boost the value of your property.
For example, any cracks in the walls, stains on the ceiling and floor, and pest and odor problems will detract from your value. Address these issues for a better house valuation. Keep in mind that the exterior of your property also affects the value. Proper landscaping can make a significant difference in an appraisal. Furthermore, if you have any major repairs that should be made, tackle them. Make note of any updates and repairs that you do to your home to show the appraiser-- particularly those that are not immediately obvious, like new insulation.
An important thing to remember is that our house appraisal experts are not there to judge the cleanliness or décor of your home. Basic cleaning and redesigning will not shift your home’s value very much because appraisers do not consider factors that are not permanently affixed to the house. What impacts the value of your home the most are its essential characteristics, such as its age, size, the number of rooms, location, and so on.
