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. Are you working with an agent to list your house? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing houses for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a logical process.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where The August Group Inc. comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a factual listing price for your home. Contact us today.

The August Group Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we can also:
  • Be a an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have found a an interested buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your house's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make yourself aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected headaches that can cause sales to go up in smoke
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means you waste time and (not to mention) money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Improvements that add value to your home

The August Group Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel... Almost any project will influence value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

The August Group Inc. can help you with these important decisions. The August Group Inc. appraisers have no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price -- our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. So a professional appraisal from The August Group Inc. will help homeowners make the decisions on investments to add value and deciding on a fair sales price.
