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

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Going to sell your home yourself?

Quite a few IN homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining 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 problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally expected. Others have an an overestimated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
