There is definitely a value to some home improvements. However, not all home improvements are equal. Overall, the fair market value of your home will be determined by you and the person buying your home. Once you agree on a price, the buyers bank will do an appraisal to be sure that their investment (aka the mortgage) is a safe one. They do this by sending over an appraiser to walk through and look at your home and then compare the specifics of your home to others that have sold in the area.

If you have concerns about your home appraising for the accepted offer price, there are a few things you can do. You can be sure your home is looking its best the day of the appraisal. Leave out a list of the improvements you've made to the home especially if they are not immediately apparent ... (keep in mind the appraiser has no obligation to take or even look at your list) ... and have your agent prepare a packet for the appraiser that includes the contract, listing, tax card and some comps. Again, the appraiser may or may not be willing to take or look at that information but it is always better to have that information together.

Factor in supply and demand because a buyer may be willing to pay more for something that they really want and others really want.

There are probably many, but you may consider becoming a referral agent. Only licensed agents can receive a referral fee. But there are a number of ways to work as referral agent. Relocation specialist comes to mind first. Just a thought.

people cant look at what they dont know about. your realtor should have aplan in place for marketing and advertising that should have been explained to you. Some realtors are quicker and better than others, all the prep should have been done before signing so that once you sign they are already on the go with your listing. Usually immediately after getting your listing i would enter it into the MLS so all teh other brokers would have access to information on your house. I would then enter it into all teh top real estate sites like Trulia where i can get hits upon the listing going live. I would make sure i have a sign up so people can see your home is for sale. And all of this done within 2 hours of listing. newspaper ads can take a couple of days to get out there, but the internet and mls is instant. you should contact your listing agent at once and make sure they are on the same page of what you expect, because if you are this worried after only 4 days, things could get ugly agfter 4 weeks. You also need to make sure your house is priced accordingly to todays market, an overpriced home will not get looked at. good luck with your sale ... more
