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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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. Overpriced homes don't attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a factual listing price for your home in today's changing market.

Working with a real estate agent to list your house? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you have 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 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".

Improvements to add value
