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

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's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

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 if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to take an objective look at 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.

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
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an inflated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
