Selling your home in or near Saint Louis County? Contact The August Group Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of 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 if you're going to do it right, quickly and for the best price, what you need is a skilled appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help decrease the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion 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. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
