YOUR HOME’S ASSESSMENT, APPRAISAL, AND MARKET VALUE

By Joe and Deb - VR SAM on 3/6/2014

Frequently, sellers and buyers, and even their Realtors, confuse the terms “Assessment,” “Appraisal,” and the actual “Market Value” of a home. For instance, a buyer considering a home that is listed for $300,000 will research the public tax records and note that the “tax assessment” is only $250,000 and concludes that this must be the “market value” of the home. The buyer then constructs his / her offer accordingly only to be disappointed when the offer is rejected.

Painting your house is the fastest and least expensive way to boost it to the top of its price range and possibly kick it up a level. Paint can bring a house up to date, clean it up, and give buyer’s the idea that they can move right in. And of course neutral colors are the easiest to live with. But does it have to be white? Absolutely not. Neutrals include soft taupe, linen, soft gray green, and putty. You may not have to paint at all “IF” the paint is in excellent condition, if it is a current soft neutral color, and if it is complimentary to the furnishings. If you do need to paint, choose a neutral that compliments the carpets. Be sure the carpeting is clean and in good condition. Neutrals are best ...

THE MILITARY HOME SELLER’S CHECKLIST

By Joe and Deb - VR SAM on 3/6/2014

In a previous article where we presented our ”Military Home Buyer’s” checklist, we observed that “no two military moves are alike. “ PCS orders may arrive late and may interrupt the school year. The move may be from one end of the globe to the other, crossing numerous time zones. The packers may be late…you know the drill! What else could go wrong? The military member may be deployed leaving the spouse to deal with a myriad of complicated issues, including the sale of your present home.
