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

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of IN homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly 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 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.

In addition to helping you set a astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting 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
