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 more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from The August Group Inc. actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's adapting market.
