Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact The August Group Inc.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

In today's changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a just listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your house, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement.

And that's where The August Group Inc. comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

The August Group Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unknown messes that can cause sales to break down
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value

The August Group Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We'll step in and help make these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from The August Group Inc. is based on our efforts to complete your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from The August Group Inc..
