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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few IN homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, what you need is a skilled appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is a great deal more than they thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable 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, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
