Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Monroe Owen Appraisal, Inc. will ensure you get it right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

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 to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
