Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious 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 its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a true listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays a list of sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market, this is a really important step.

In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

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

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

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown issues that cause the process to fold
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals can help you with these important decisions. Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
