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

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; 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 practically impossible for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of MO homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent.

We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable bargaining tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is much more than they thought. So investing in an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months.
