Getting an appraisal from Monroe Owen Appraisal, Inc. before putting your Bloomington home on the market saves you time and money.

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

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

More and more IN homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help 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, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell 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 asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high 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
