At Least For A While...
This goes against my capitalistic instincts, however, I am currently unable to accept appraisal assigmments from anyone other than my established clients until further notice. This is a direct result of historic low interest rates and the high volume of ongoing refi activity in my back yard- Chautauqua County, USA. It's a great time to refinance- if you haven't already, talk to your favorite mortage lender... the savings can be enormous!

How to Get a Better Appraisal
Here's an article that suggests 8 ways to get a better appraisal. While some of the examples are from markets very different from ours, most of the ideas can work here. Click here for a brief, useful read.
COST VS VALUE
Wondering about value added by a new kitchen...
...or bathroom, or other major project???
This annual report by Remodeling Magazine & the National Association of Realtors shows the gain in market value vs. the cost of various improvement projects, now updated for 2013. See how much value is added by common upgrades, remodeling, additions, etc. in our region. It's an eye opener... for example, a major kitchen remodel on a "midrange" house returns only 69 cents in market value for each dollar invested, while a sunroom addition returns just 46 cents on the dollar (ouch). Check it out here.
Mortgage Rates, Still Near Historic Lows!
