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 house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of houses for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a logical move.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you've hired an experienced real estate agent.

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

We're also experienced in assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers. A professional appraisal from The August Group Inc. can:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected predicaments that cause the process to fizzle
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

The August Group Inc. will step in and help make these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
