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 them 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 amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract interested 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a proper listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your home? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar houses for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point when 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 standard process.

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

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

Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown issues that can cause your sale to crumble
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

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 home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll step in and help make these decisions. Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals appraisers have no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals is based on our efforts to complete the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price.
