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 thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't 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 on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a proper listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your house, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays comparable homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

But even if you are working with an accomplished agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

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

Home improvements that add value

The August Group Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
