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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money 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 get a handle on real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

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 assistance of a real estate agent.

  • Help decrease the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop
