Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact MANDERFIELD APPRAISAL GROUP

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 a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people 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 value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

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

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your home? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes competing sales in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

But even if you've been working with an accomplished agent , it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.

And that's where MANDERFIELD APPRAISAL GROUP can help you! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will charm buyers. A knowledgeable appraisal from MANDERFIELD APPRAISAL GROUP can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found an interested buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected problems that cause negotiations to flop
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements that add value to your home

MANDERFIELD APPRAISAL GROUP can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
