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 from us 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 sellers who think their home is worth much 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 serious 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 its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get an accurate listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where Mike Noble Appraisals comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

An efficient appraisal from Mike Noble Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unknown quandaries that can cause your sale to break down
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
