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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Mitchell Real Estate Appraisals actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract potential 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. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

In today's evolving market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get an exact listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your home, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing sales in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very logical) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with the most experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

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

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unexpected disputes that can cause your sale to fold
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
