Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from The August Group Inc..

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

More and more MO homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a qualified appraiser.

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 realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Decrease the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to fall through

People are surprised to discover the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months.
