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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

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

It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very common) step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
