5 stars – testimonials

Looking for a real estate agent? Melanie Kramer is an excellent and smart choice. We whole-heartedly recommend her services. We worked with Melanie in 2006 when she helped us find the house that best fit our needs. Then in 2015 we worked with Melanie to help us sell. Both experiences surpassed our expectations. Melanie is a local expert and was full of great recommendations for service providers. When we needed to sell, our home was empty and she staged it so beautifully that we wanted to move back in! Melanie is very knowledgeable of all the ins and outs of the buying and selling process. Melanie is easy and convenient to communicate with and we always felt like we were her number one clients. Her negotiation skills and advice proved to be sound, reasonable and worked to our benefit. She always had our best interest in mind. Melanie is a wonderful person and through our working experience we consider her a friend. Choose Melanie and you will have results! ” – Ramsey

She was awesome!!Worked to get us every dollar she could for our home. Melanie has an outstanding understanding of the real a state market in the Richmond Hill area.” – Jones

The home we purchased had been listed without disclosure that the sale had to clear probate. For four months Melanie went far beyond what could be reasonably expected of a buyer’s agent. Employing her extensive knowledge and experience as both paralegal and Realtor, Melanie relentlessly pushed the process forward despite a frequently unresponsive seller’s agent.

Melanie dealt most professionally with our growing frustration as well. She kept us well informed every step of the way and her patience and encouragement allowed us to persevere. At no small expense of her time, Melanie got us through the ordeal. Were it not for her tenacity and dedication to us there is no question that our dream of a home on the water would not have materialized.

We have bought other homes in the past and Melanie far surpasses every other agent we have had. Without reservation I can say that Melanie is in a class by herself and she has earned my highest recommendation.” – Stevens

3 Tips to Attain a Higher Home Appraisal

Attaining a higher home appraisal is crucial when refinancing or selling your home.

Home Appraisal

Although nearby properties will affect the market value of all homes in your neighbor, there are activities you can do to help attain a higher home appraisal.

3 Ways to Increase Your Home Appraisal

Pull Together Your Information

You have about 30 minutes to make a good first impression. We suggest putting together an information packet the appraiser can take back to the office.

What should go in this packet?

  • Facts about your home. Include the number of bedrooms and bathroom, your street address and the year your home was built. Your appraiser has access to all this information but confirmation from you can’t hurt.
  • We can print out a list of recent sales in the neighborhood. We specifically look for comparable homes and comparable prices to help support the price you’re asking.
  • Include any inside information you may have. Maybe you know that your neighbor recently sold his home at a reduced price because he was relocating for a new job.
  • Create a list of any improvements you’ve made to the home. Include the date and the name and contact information of the contractors that performed the work. Include any floors, windows and major systems you’ve replaced. Have you finished the basement? Include that too.

Spiff Up Your Home

… overgrown landscaping, soiled carpeting, marks on walls — those do affect value and are part of the property’s overall condition rating,” Dean Zibas of Zibas Appraisal in San Clemente, Calif., told the Wall Street Journal.

  • You don’t need to stage your home for an appraisal, but it is important to showcase a well maintained home.
  • Cleaning the clutter, even if it’s just putting excess items into a box and storing them until after the appraisal, will help show your home in the best light.

Make Repairs

  • Your home will be assigned an ” effective age” which is directly correlated to the condition of the home and any improvements made.
  • Appraisals tend to be done in $500 increments. A broken window could mean a $500 deduction.
  • A good rule of thumb is to make any improvements that would age the home in the eyes of the appraisal. There may be fairly simple improvements like replacing a window screen, or more substantial ones like a coat of paint or updating your floors.

It is true that the sale prices of comparable properties are heavily relied upon when assessing a property’s value, but appraisers do not solely depend upon them. Some intangible aspects of the data collected will help determine the closest estimate of the value of a property. And these are often the aspects of the appraisal process that you can have an influence on.
