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

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, 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 the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.
