Getting an appraisal from Andel Appraisals before putting your Cook County 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's worth the money in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of 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, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Quite a few Illinois homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, what you need is a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very useful 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 problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help decrease the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

Folks are sometimes surprised to discover the value of their home is higher than they originally thought. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order 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 will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
