Trying to Push Home Value Higher and Worried About it Appraising? Do This…

If you are worried about the appraisal coming in low because of FHA guidelines or pushing higher end value, you can help your cause by leaving a list of all of the upgrades done to the home on the kitchen table after you have the home under contract. But do NOT put the cost of those upgrades. That way the appraiser will get it and may use it to justify your sales price. Note: This can NOT be done directly. You can not allowed to ‘influence’ the appraiser. But you CAN help them by telling them everything that is new in the house (that other homes that have sold may not have).

Fun fact: This video was shot on Aiea Loop Trail on Oahu, Hawaii, with great views of the mountains heading to the windward side of the island.
