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 studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

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

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 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 so your home will attract 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 get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing

It can be surprising to people when they find out their home's value is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months.
