Hello Laura,
Unfortunately, your situation is one that many are facing right now. However, most good appraisers will take an apples to apples approach. They will look for properties that most resemble your property in terms of condition, style, and size. However, they can not skip over something on your block even if it was a short sale or foreclosure, so unfortunately, they will have to assess it as well. Hopefully you property is in better condition and they will make price adjustments based on that. These types of transactions are 50/50 depending on who the appraiser is. I would begin considering what your bottom line number is, in the event the appraisal does come back short, such that you have given it some thought before hand and you are not forced into making an emotional decision, vs. a rational one. If you have a solid buyer, it may make sense for you to take a little bit of a price cut, based on appraisal if needed, rather than waiting on another buyer to come around and possibly having the same thing happen. Of course your reason for selling will play a big factor in your decision as well. Hope that helps.

You need to get a CMA, actually a few of them. You can see what's sold, what's on the market currently, etc.
You have to be realistic when pricing, that's very important. It's very hard to determine prices in this market, sad but true. You have to take the knowledge you have available to you and make a decision from that. Then you can list your house and see what interest there is. I wish you the best with this. If I can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact me. ... more

I am with Baird & Warner and live in the Bolingbrook area. Finding the right agent is more important than finding the top office. You don't want to get a bad agent out of a great top producing office. Good luck in finding the right home for you and hope you have a GREAT Memorial Day weekend. Take care. ... more

You may want to start on and Craigslist.. Realtors typically syndicate their other words, sites funnel listings to each other, so you get much more exposure that way. As Joan mentioned below, you can expect to be on 25-50 websites with a Realtor, including their brokerages,,,,, Craigslist, etc... The bottom line is that different buyers use different sources for their home search, so to truly be effective, you do have to be EVERYWHERE. ... more
