Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Mike Noble 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 house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Mike Noble Appraisals actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

Are you 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 includes comparable homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you're working with the most experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

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

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find a prospective buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected problems that can cause your sale to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.
