Getting an appraisal from Kurb Service Appraisals before putting your Dupage County home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.
