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 you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes competing sales houses in your local area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC comes in! We'll do 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 fluctuating market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a solid listing price for your home. Contact us today.

Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value 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 interested buyers, which means you throw away time and money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Should I put in that third bathroom... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Virtually any project will affect value in some way. But each thing impacts marketability differently. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We can step in and help make these important decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. An appraisal fee from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC is based on our efforts to complete your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. So a professional appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC helps homeowners make the decisions when it comes to investments to add value and deciding on a profit-maximizing sales price.
