Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal 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 over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property 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 on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your home? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you've been working with an accomplished agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Mike Noble Appraisals comes in! We'll do 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".

In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell so your house will intrigue buyers. An expert appraisal from Mike Noble Appraisals can:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you find a potential buyer
  • Impress potential 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 dilemmas that can cause sales to fall through
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
