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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a just listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays comparable houses for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point when 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.

Even if you have been working with the most expert agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

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

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

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to impress buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unexpected headaches that can cause your sale to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

The August Group Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We can step in and help make these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
