Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC.

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 sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays comparable sales in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market, this is a really important step.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you have hired the most experienced agent.

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

In today's fluctuating market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a sharp listing price for your home. Contact us today.

An expert appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in potential buyers, and we'll also:
  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a potential buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unknown difficulties that can cause your sale to fall through
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close
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 an appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC actually allowed these sellers 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Improvements to add value to your home

REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Does the carpet need replacing... Should I complete my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project will affect value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC. When it comes to investing in your home and deciding on a fair sales price, we'll help homeowners like you make the smartest decisions.
