Putting a house on the market in or near Saint Louis County? Contact The August Group Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of MO homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they originally thought. Others have an an exaggerated impression of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
