Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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 home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with an experienced real estate agent.

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

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a sharp listing price for your home in today's adapting market. Contact us today.

We're also experienced in assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your home will charm buyers, a skillful appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC can:
  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make yourself aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected headaches that can cause sales to crumble
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value 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 squander time and money and are left with no offers. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel... Virtually any project has the potential to influence value in some way. But not everything will have the same return on investment. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC appraisers have no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price -- our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report. So a professional appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC will help you make the wisest decisions when it comes to investments to add value and settling on a fair sales price.
