In this video, Realtor and Broker, Tony Zito, and Home Appraiser, Bill Cobb, discuss how appraisers value enclosures and additions. It all depends on the quality of the improvement and how close it matches the original quality of the home and design of the original home. Was the slab raised to the height of the slab of the original home? Does the enclosure or addition flow well with the original floor plan? Was the central heat and air conditioning upgraded to handle the extra living area without installation of a window unit? Does the flooring match the original flooring or did they just install cheap indoor/outdoor carpeting? These are the questions an appraiser attempts to answer while on-site.
