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 An agent to sell your property, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

That's where REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get an exact listing price for your home. Contact us today.

REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in buyers, and we can also:
  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you find a an interested buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unknown difficulties that cause the process to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract interested 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Does the carpet need replacing... Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel... Virtually any project can affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price -- our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report. So a professional appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC helps you make the sharpest decisions on investments to add value and setting a smart price at which to sell.
