Getting an appraisal from Mannion Appraisals before putting your Oak Lawn home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few IL 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 for top dollar, you need a skilled appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it's hard 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.

In addition to helping you set a astute selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Lower the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

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 allowed them to get several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated opinion when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it 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 sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
