Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a precise listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes competing sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you are working with the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your home will appeal to buyers. An expert appraisal from Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you find an interested buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown dilemmas that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We'll step in and help you make these decisions. Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
