Selling your home in or near Saint Louis County? Contact The August Group Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.
