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 a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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 will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

In today's changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a proper listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable sale homes in your area. 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 crucial step.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you have been working with an experienced agent.

And that's where REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A qualified appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown messes that can cause sales to flop
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll step in and help make these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price.
