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. Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding 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 really important step.

But even if you have hired an experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both 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".

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

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had 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 amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious 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 sits on the market.

Home improvements that add value

REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Should I complete my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project has the potential to influence value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC. When it comes to investing in your house and deciding on a fair sale price, we'll help you make the wisest decisions.
