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 planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.
