Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Monroe Owen Appraisal, Inc. will ensure you get it right.

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 spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses 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 assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, what you need is a skilled appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, it can be very hard to take an objective look at 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.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated impression of the value of their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than 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
