Chicago is simply a wonderful city to appraise in.  We have here just about every property type imaginable.  We also have among the greatest economic diversities imaginable.  We have Ford Heights, one of the poorest communities in the United States and we have Kenilworth, one of the wealthiest. Appraising here has provided us with the opportunity to appraise all kinds of unusual properties.  these are not typically the types that we appraise on a national basis - but they are unusual.  We've looked at sand dunes, globally rare earth and sludge pits.  We've been to Jamaica in New York City and the City of Yakima in Washington.  Being located in Chicago makes us only hours away from virtually anywhere in the country.   

This list is only meant to be representative of some of the types of properties we have appraised.  Obviously, we appraise numerous common properties such as apartment buildings, subdivisions, shopping centers and warehouses.  Properties with an asterisk have photos added.

NOTE : If you are thinking of ordering an appraisal for financing purposes, please consult with your lender first.  Federal law dictates that banks must order the appraisal - not the borrower.
