Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Andel Appraisals.

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 pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few Illinois homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to be objective about your 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 can getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help prevent the possibility of hidden problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out that the value of their home is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of their home's value, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it 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
