Selling your home in or near Hawaii County? Contact REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

More and more HI homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, you need a expert appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it can be very difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
