Putting a house on the market in or near Monroe County? Contact Daniel Todd Appraisal Services, LLC and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. 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 a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand local real estate values.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of IN homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent.

We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

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

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is higher than they first thought. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
