Putting a house on the market in or near Saint Louis County? Contact The August Group Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few MO homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a qualified appraiser. You need objective opinions, it can be very hard to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is quite a bit more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
