Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Mannion Appraisals
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, 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 amount of value 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 home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.
In today's evolving market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a true listing price for your home.Contact us
Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes comparable sales in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural move.
In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
That's where Mannion Appraisals comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Upgrades that improve your home's 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 "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.
We'll help you make some of these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
