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. If you're working with a real estate agent to list your house, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar sales in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

Even if you have been working with an experienced agent, it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value 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 a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's evolving market. Contact us today.

REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to buyers, and we can also:
  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a a prospective buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make yourself aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown complications that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Almost any project will affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC can help you with these decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair sale price, a professional appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC helps homeowners like you make the wisest decisions.
