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.

So many people are blown away 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 people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of 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 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 its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a true listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your house, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected sales in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very logical) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've hired the most experienced real estate 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 we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A polished appraisal from The August Group Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected quandaries that can cause sales to fizzle
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
