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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people 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 serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point in determining 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 vital step.

In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

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 comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Improvements to add value to your home
