Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Choice Appraisals, Inc..

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 house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

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

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes similar homes for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a logical process.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement, even if you have hired an experienced agent.

And that's where Choice Appraisals, Inc. can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A skillful appraisal from Choice Appraisals, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected predicaments that can cause sales to break down
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Choice Appraisals, Inc. appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your home sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
