Appraisals Auburn: How to Avoid Low Home Appraisals 

Appraisals Auburn: When you want to sell a property, the last thing you want to get is a low appraisal Federal Way. But with the market being down at the moment, all you can do is pray for a good price.


Your efforts for getting a good price for your home do not stop at prayers. If you want to sell a property in Auburn, Federal Way, Lakewood, Olympia, Puyallup, Tacoma, or University Place here are a few tricks which will help you avoid under-scoring.

Get more than one appraisal Lakewood

Even if the bank does not allow you to choose your appraiser, have one come to your house and give you an estimate price. It will cost you extra money, but you will have 2 prices to compare. Moreover, you can tell your lender to find an appraiser who comes from your county, or your region.

Bonus: Did you know that a great number of appraisers are just pulling up data out of the Multiple Listing Service without checking it out? Meet the appraiser when they are checking your property and talk with them about the recent short sales and foreclosures that might skew the comps.

Be objective – would you buy it?

Is it something YOU would buy if you were looking for a house? How much would YOU pay for it? Try to be objective – we all love our homes, but we need to keep a distant attitude when we try to look for faults in our properties.

Invest in it

You may be thinking that, since you are moving anyway, you shouldn’t invest too much in your home, right? Wrong. You can renovate a bit here and a bit there just to make it look better, modern. We’re not talking about thousands of dollars here, but a small investment that has the power to add some value to your house.
