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. Working with an agent to list your property? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected sales in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a 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 home's features.

Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a solid listing price for your home in today's changing market. Contact us today.

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your house will entice potential buyers, a qualified appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC can:
  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you find a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make yourself aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected issues that cause negotiations to go up in smoke
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten
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 from us actually allowed these people 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 a lot 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 property will not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

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... Should I put in that third bathroom... Should I finish my closet remodel... Nearly any project will influence value in some way. But, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. A professional appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC will help you make the best decisions on investments to add value and deciding on a smart listing price.
