Getting an appraisal is easier than you think!
We strive to make the appraisal process as easy as possible for you from ordering & paying to receiving the appraisal. You can order, pay and receive your appraisal all from the comfort of your home. Be assured you will get the highest quality appraisal report available in multiple formats to serve your needs.
As a Chicago appraiser, we offer the following appraisals:
A full appraisal has the highest degree of market and property data. An appraiser will contact you to schedule an inspection date and time. The appraisal inspection can take anywhere from a half hour to one hour to complete. During the inspection the appraiser will create a diagram (sketch) of your house, notate the layout, take some interior photos and analyze the degree of updating and condition of the property. A full appraisal includes: opinion of value, sketch/layout of property, neighborhood market analysis and a full list of comparable properties and value adjustments.
When all you need is a value...The desktop appraisal is conducted with data from online sources without a home inspection. The appraisal will include: value of property, comparable properties and limited neighborhood analysis. Because less data is included in the report and minimal driving is necessary, the turn around time for a completed report is shorter.
A great choice for the busy homeowner who has limited time to schedule an interior inspection of their residence. Drive by appraisals are the most accurate for properties in neighborhoods with other similar homes. Drive by appraisals are not recommended for properties that are: custom designed, living space greater than 3,000sf (not including basement), unique design compared to the neighborhood and homes with an addition.
A drive by appraisal includes everything from a full appraisal with the excpetion of the property sketch and room layout.
