Selling your home in or near Monroe County? Contact Monroe Owen Appraisal, Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of 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, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard 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 selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is quite a bit more than they thought. So spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
