Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal 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 home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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 decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get an expert listing price for your home.
