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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a just listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your property, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

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

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

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?"
