If you're poised to list your home among Beavercreek homes for sale or Centerville homes for sale, your real estate agent has probably given you the lowdown on appraisals. Just to reprise what you probably were told: 1. If you really need to know how much your home is worth, you may have to order your own appraisal; and 2. A potential buyer may need to order an appraisal on your home to see if it's worth what you're asking for it. They can then seek a loan for the amount that you're asking if the appraisal figure agrees with it.
Regardless of whether this is your appraisal or your potential buyer's, you will need to get ready and put your best foot forward. What kinds of things will be looked at for an appraisal? This isn't exactly a staging, but it has aspects of that process. For now, the appraisal prep step is more like a general sprucing up. So let's roll up our sleeves and get busy.
