Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from The August Group Inc. will ensure you get it right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.
