Selling your home in or near Cook County? Contact Andel Appraisals and make sure you're setting the price right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

Quite a few Illinois homeowners are making the decision 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, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Alert you of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

People are surprised to discover the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
