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 sell your home? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market, this is a really important step.

Home improvements that add value

Does the carpet need replacing... Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project will influence value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck.
