Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Choice Appraisals, Inc. (Owner retired to SC).

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Choice Appraisals, Inc. (Owner retired to SC) actually allowed these sellers 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 amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a skillful listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to sell your home? Quite often you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sales in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very logical) step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A polished appraisal from Choice Appraisals, Inc. (Owner retired to SC) can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown predicaments that can cause sales to go up in smoke
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
