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 pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, 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've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

An increasing amount of MO homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for the best price, you need a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard to take an objective look at 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 so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than 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.

Get a professional value opinion before listing

You may have an extremely talented agent but it's definitely a good idea to get an objective third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a listing agreement. Let The August Group Inc. help.
