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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, 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 home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your home, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

But even if you've been working with the most expert agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems

  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from REID E.
