Hi Jak,

I would ask for a list of sold homes from the last year that are similar to yours.
I would get as many pictures of the properties as I could - inside and out.

After comparing those with your house, I would do the best to make your house like the ones that sold the fastest, for the most money.

A good local professional can give you the most informed help.
If you'd like to be referred to an experienced local professional, I would be glad to do that.

Best wishes, Heath

It should of been included the same way a pool, barn, cabana would be.

That said, was the recent appraisal for you? Will the seller sell it at a reduced price based on the appraisal and your ability to finance it?

You do have the right to ask that the appraiser include it in his value but not in the GLA of the house.

The cost approach does allow for it as well and so does the 1004uad form itself (amenities)

1. Square footage is calcuated by taking the length and width of the exterior of the home. Although the basement is not taken into account in the gross living area, it is used when determining market value. The distinction is that the above ground living space is worth more money per sq. ft. than the basement space.

2. The yard will have more impact in a tier 1 town than it would in a tier 3 town. Could it enhance the value $50K, Yes.
