Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Mobile Appraisal & Training Institute

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with an agent to list your property? Quite often they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement, even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

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

A knowledgeable appraisal from Mobile Appraisal & Training Institute can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to buyers, and we'll also:
  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found a an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to impress buyers
  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected headaches that cause the process to go up in smoke
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal 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. An overpriced property won't attract buyers, which means you squander time and (not to mention) money and are left with no prospects for buying your home. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Home improvements that add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Does the tile need replacing... Should I finish my kitchen remodel... Practically any project has the potential to affect value in some way. But each thing affects marketability differently. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

Mobile Appraisal & Training Institute will step in and help make these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. A professional appraisal from Mobile Appraisal & Training Institute helps homeowners make the best-informed decisions when it comes to investments to add value and setting a profit-maximizing listing price.
