Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC
Are you working with an agent to list your house? Then
they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price.
If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.
Even if you have been working with an experienced agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.
And that's where REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC comes in!
We can do 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".
With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get an accurate listing price for your home.

An efficient appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers, and we'll also:
Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to blow away potential buyers
Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make yourself aware of problems that might delay your closing
Decrease the chances of unknown obstacles that cause negotiations to break down
Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through
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 people 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.
Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means
no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts.
And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.
Upgrades that improve your home's value
There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home.
Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it...
Does the carpet need replacing...
Should I finish my kitchen remodel...
Virtually any project can influence value in some way.
But not everything will have an equal effect.
While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
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 a real estate agent.
Our fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair price to sell at, A professional appraisal from us helps homeowners like you make the smartest decisions.
