Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Ring and Associates

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of homes for sale in your 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 natural process.

But even if you are working with the most expert real estate agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Ring and Associates comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a just listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market. Contact us today.

Ring and Associates can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in buyers, and we can also:
  • Be a an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make yourself aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown messes that cause negotiations to go up in smoke
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people 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 a lot 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. An overpriced home will not attract potential buyers, which means you squander time and (not to mention) money and still have no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Virtually any project will affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Ring and Associates appraisers have no vested interest in what amount the home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report. A professional appraisal from Ring and Associates helps homeowners make the wisest decisions when it comes to investments to add value and settling on a profit-maximizing price at which to sell.
