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 house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Mike Noble Appraisals actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

In today's evolving market, using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a true listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

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

That's where Mike Noble Appraisals comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic price to sell so your house will intrigue potential buyers. A polished appraisal from Mike Noble Appraisals can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found an interested buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected complications that cause the process to deteriorate
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish 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. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
