Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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.

Many people are surprised 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 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. An overpriced house won't attract serious 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 the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market, this is a really important step.

But even if you've hired the most accomplished agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where The August Group Inc. comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

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

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find a prospective buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected problems that cause negotiations to flop
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements that add value to your home

The August Group Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We'll step in and help you make these important decisions. The August Group Inc. appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from The August Group Inc. is based on our efforts to complete your 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 complete your report. So a professional appraisal from The August Group Inc. helps you make the best decisions when it comes to investing in their houses and deciding on a fair price to sell at.
