Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from 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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from The August Group Inc. actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

If you're working with an agent to list your house, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you're working with the most accomplished real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where The August Group Inc. comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

We're also experienced in assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your home will bring in buyers. An expert appraisal from The August Group Inc. can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you find a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown complications that can cause your sale to crumble
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

The August Group Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from The August Group Inc. is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from The August Group Inc..
