Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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. Working with a real estate agent to list your property? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of sales in your town. 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 really important step.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement, even if you've hired an experienced real estate agent.

That's where REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent 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 ever-changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a true listing price for your home. Contact us today.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract interested buyers, which means you throw away time and (not to mention) money and still have no prospects for buying your home. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC can help with that. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Does the carpet need replacing... Should I complete my kitchen remodel... Almost any project will influence 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 your costs before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We can step in and help you make these important 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 complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. A professional appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC will help homeowners make the sharpest decisions on investments to add value and settling on a fair listing price.
