Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact The August Group Inc.
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, 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 serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. 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 home is sitting still on the market.
With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a just listing price for your home.Contact us today

It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very logical) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.
And that's where The August Group Inc. comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Improvements that add value to your home
In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the expenses involved.
