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 more than they estimated, 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. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential 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 all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your house, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

That's where Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals comes 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 home's features.

A qualified appraisal from Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape 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
  • Reduce chances of unknown complications that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We'll step in and help make these important decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals is based on our efforts to complete the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals. When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair sales price, we'll help homeowners like you make the best decisions.
