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 pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.
This isn't a discussion of how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.
