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 more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal 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 price value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do 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 you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get an exact listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your property? More than likely, 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 good starting point in determining 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 vital step.

Even if you are working with an expert real estate agent , it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

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

We're also experienced in assisting you with setting a realistic price to sell so your home will charm buyers. A qualified appraisal from Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown difficulties that can cause sales to fold
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will 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.

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