Size matters...In your home's value

  Today I am talking about the value of your home and one of the many things that affect that. There are some simple things you can do to make sure you get the most money for your home. Have your home measured by a licensed appraiser before it hits the market. You see the tax man does not measure the home and only takes the builders word for it. I spoke with an appraiser about measuring homes and he said in all the homes that he measured he found that 95% of the homes had a wrong square footage, sometimes by as much as 250 square feet. That would affect the value of the home drastically. If you would like to talk about what you need to do before you list your home to sell just give me a call, 469-835-0540  

Have a great day

Appraisal Time Bomb!?

This check will expand the number of comparable sales and possibly negatively affect the appraised value. As your Realtor it is my job to keep you informed. Take a look at a full explanation here. As with all changes in real estate we will have to wait and see...
