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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

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 for the best price, what you need is a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking 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
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to deteriorate

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment of the value of their home, 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 waiting on the market for months. Selling too high will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
