Home Value Estimator
Evaluation of your home is an important starting step towards selling the home as it is necessary to have an estimate of the market value of the property. We at Homula provide full assistance for evaluating your home for free. The area square footage, in-house construction and need for maintenance are some of the critical factors that are examined in the assessment of the market value of the property.

To sell your property at higher profits, you need to make your home ready for evaluation in advance. The up keeping needs of the home can drastically reduce the value of your home as it not only gives the home an unpleasant look but also opens up a column for maintenance bills. If the repairing work is not complete, the potential buyer will not be interested in buying the property at the proposed price, citing reasons such as expenses towards the maintenance from his pocket. So, clean up, and maintenance is necessary for attracting good offers for your home and closing the deal quickly at the best market price for the property.
You should keep the home in perfect condition for the day of evaluation as its obvious that a well-maintained home is evaluated higher than the one messed up. Fix the broken windows and staircase railings before evaluation, to put a good impression on appraiser about the condition of property. Clean the home thoroughly and if required, paint the doors and window grills as well. Repair leaky faucets or broken pipelines. Highlight the salient features of the property like the surrounding views and aerodynamic design to attract more value during evaluation.

It may be related to the architecture, design or air circulation in the home as these points would otherwise not be taken into consideration at the time of assessment. The evaluator might relate to the salient features emphasized by you and could add few more numbers in the final evaluation of the property as these features can be helpful in luring potential buyers for the sale of the property as well. You can also include the details of the good locality and warm neighbors in the vicinity. Extending it further to present a comparison of the sales trends in your neighborhood and also share the details of land prices that have been quoted for the recently sold homes in the area.
