  • Having incomplete remodeling projects. If you must, make sure you include details of the complete project and when it is to be finished to the appraiser. 
  • Failing to list improvements or upgrades made to the home. Compile a list of upgrades and home improvements made to the home and offer it to the appraiser. While some items, like a new roof, may not help raise the appraised value, other items might.
