Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Andel Appraisals will ensure you get it right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Selling yourself instead of using a real estate agent and need help with pricing?

More and more IL homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a professional appraisal. The best thing to have is objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard 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.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the interior and exterior condition of your home
  • Make you aware of issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is higher than they first thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they originally expected. Others have an an exaggerated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically 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, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
