There is no surefire way to get your home appraised at a higher value than it's worth, but there are a few things you can do to increase your chances. First and foremost, make sure your home is in good condition both inside and out. Secondly, make sure all of your property taxes and insurance payments are up to date. Finally, be sure to have plenty of recent documentation (mortgage statements, bills, etc.) on hand to show the appraiser. If you can tick all of these boxes, you'll give the appraiser everything they need to give your home the highest possible appraisal.
