Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Monroe Owen Appraisal, Inc..

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to get a handle on local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few IN homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be very hard to be objective about your 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 sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help prevent the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised to discover their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
