If you are like most homeowners, you might be concerned about the value of your home, especially if you are thinking about refinancing your place. I started carefully considering home appraisals a few years ago, and it was really clear to me that I needed to work harder to make sure my place was all sorted out. Before the appraisal, we cleaned up the yard and made a few improvements inside the home. Next, we focused on painting the walls to create a brighter, more welcoming environment. I made this blog to help other people to learn more about home appraisals, since they aren't always easy to figure out.
