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 an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of 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 to sell it for. Instead, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.
