Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from The August Group Inc. will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.
