Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a correct listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected sales 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 your home's time on the market, this is a really important step.

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

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

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have a prospective buyer
