March - Appraisal month in review

The spring real estate market is starting to pick up. In the month of March I completed 18 full appraisals. These included condominiums in Chicago's Lakeview, Grand Boulevard and West town neighborhoods. Single family homes in Ashburn, Gage Park, Woodlawn and Chicago Lawn neighborhoods. And two flats in Austin, Auburn Gresham and Greater Grand Crossing.

In addition I saw homes in Round Lake, North Riverside, Chicago Heights and Thornton.

In my youth, I completed 129 appraisals in the month of May, 1978. That was my peak.

They included SFR's, condo's, 2-4's and 5-unit properties. All hand written. I was the best. They were all bad but I was too young and dumb to know it.

Last year, all combined, my office did not do 100 reports, although we invented a new one.

Since the SOW changed last July, we have been offering Desk Appraisals starting at $300. Clients love them, they are fast, hours instead of days.

If you are planning to buy a home, you need to see this. This is an amazing website, it helps you calculate the taxes, rent costs, buying and selling costs, to calculate the future value of a series of payments and lots of other things related to buying a home.

In fact is the only site that allows a potential home buyer to do sophisticated financial analysis of the monetary consequences of a very important decision -- buying a home.

Because buying a home is also an investment that deserves the same cold financial review one would give to a portfolio of securities or corporate obligations.

It definitely is worth a try.
Check it out now.
