Putting a house on the market in or near Owen County? Contact Monroe Owen Appraisal, Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few IN homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's hard to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally expected. Others have an an exaggerated impression when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
