Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from The August Group Inc. actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's evolving market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a factual listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

But even if you have been working with an experienced agent , it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where The August Group Inc. comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

The August Group Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find an interested buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unexpected obstacles that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
