Be Aware of Recent Developments
If the area near your home is seeing growth or there are plans for future developments, let the appraiser know. It might not be on their radar.
Give the Appraiser Room to Work
Appraisers are likely greeted by eager home sellers all the time. But back off and let them work. You can make their work pleasant but don’t go overboard and trail them through every room. It’s likely to set off alarms.
Review the Appraisal
Appraisers aren’t infallible so it’s important to review their work to verify the facts are correct. Square footage totals can vary from appraiser to appraiser.
