Getting an appraisal from Accredited Appraisals before putting your Cook County home on the market saves you time and money.
If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to get a handle on local real estate values.
While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses the true market value of your home.
