Getting an appraisal from The August Group Inc. before putting your Saint Louis County home on the market saves you time and money.
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 you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand real estate market forces.
This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.
