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 a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

An increasing amount of Illinois homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to take an objective look at 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 will getting a professional appraisal help you set a realistic selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help decrease the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people to discover the value of their home is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally expected. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than waiting on the market for months.
