Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal 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.

Many people are surprised 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. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sales in your area. It's a customary starting point in deciding 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 natural process.

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.

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

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

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected messes that can cause sales to go up in smoke
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "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?" Many things which we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals can help you with these decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price.
