Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Mannion 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 spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to understand real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

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 to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult 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 can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is quite a bit more than they thought. So spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion when they put a value on 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 sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
