Getting an appraisal from McNeeley Appraisals, LLC. before putting your Cook or Dupage County home on the market saves you time and money.

Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.
We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.
