Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from The August Group Inc. will ensure you get it right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays 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 fully grasp local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

More and more MO homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it's very difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only will 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 negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
