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.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

In addition to helping you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating when you find a potential buyer

  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing

People are surprised to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they expected they would get.
