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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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 house will not attract interested buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

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

Working with an agent to list your property? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sales houses in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

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

A polished appraisal from MANDERFIELD APPRAISAL GROUP can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unknown complications that can cause your sale to fall through
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Home improvements that add value

MANDERFIELD APPRAISAL GROUP can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire 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 affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

MANDERFIELD APPRAISAL GROUP will step in and help make these important decisions. MANDERFIELD APPRAISAL GROUP appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
