Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from The August Group Inc..

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few MO homeowners are deciding 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 for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, it can be 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 can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is quite a bit more than they thought. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated opinion of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.

Even if you have with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to get an objective third-party's opinion of value prior to finalizing a listing agreement. And that's where The August Group Inc. comes in. We can provide you with a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a definitive description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the newest and similar comparable sales or as they're commonly called, "comps".
