Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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 thought, so investing in an appraisal from Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a true listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your home? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you're working with an accomplished agent , it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unknown quandaries that cause negotiations to fall through
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals can help you with these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
