Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from The August Group Inc..

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.
