Getting an appraisal from AnDel Appraisals before putting your Arlington Hts 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 a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

We are not talking about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few Illinois 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 to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. 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 selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Call attention to any problems and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, 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 instead of 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
