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 house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's price value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

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 displays selected sales houses in your town. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a logical move.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement, even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both 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 selling price so your home will interest buyers. A polished appraisal from Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unknown obstacles that cause the process to fold
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I 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. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We can step in and help make these important decisions. Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your home 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.
