Well, we applied to refinance and it was approved, under condition of a favorable appraisal. In this market, is there anything that we should do (in the next couple of days) to prepare our home for the appraisal to get the highest appraisal possible? The house across the street with the same floor plan and similar lot--the closest and best comp--sold for $150,000 in August. We just need it to come in around $140,000, but want to do anything we can to better our chances of that with declining home values across the board. Any suggestions? We have 3 kids 3 and under, so I know stowing the toys in the closet will be necessary for an hour or so, but aside from that?
