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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from The August Group Inc. actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract interested buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a skillful listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural move.

But even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

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

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find a prospective buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unknown complications that cause the process to break down
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.
