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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a solid listing price for your home in today's changing market.

Are you working with an agent to list your home? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement, even if you're working with the most experienced agent.

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

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will charm buyers. A polished appraisal from The August Group Inc. can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have a prospective buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown complications that can cause sales to fold
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

The August Group Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We can step in and help you make these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
