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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a just listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from a licensed professional who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We can 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".

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic price to sell so your home will appeal to buyers. A knowledgeable appraisal from The August Group Inc. can:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected problems that can cause sales to flop
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

We'll step in and help you make these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are 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 the sales price — our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. A professional appraisal from The August Group Inc. will help homeowners make the best decisions on investing in their home and deciding on a fair price to sell at.
