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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

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

Are you working with an agent to list your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both 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.

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic price to sell so your home will entice buyers. A skillful appraisal from Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals can:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected messes that can cause your sale to crumble
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. 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 help you make some of these decisions. Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your home sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
