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 going to sell your home, you should seriously consider 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 their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.
