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

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

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few IL homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a qualified appraiser. The best thing to have is objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very hard to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the possibility of unidentified problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helped them to 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 will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
