When it comes to home appraisals, the question of whether or not to ask the appraiser to remove their shoes can be a common concern for homeowners. While some may feel hesitant about requesting this, it’s important to remember that your comfort in your home matters.
Asking the appraiser to take off their shoes is entirely reasonable and understandable. Many homeowners prefer this out of respect for their homes, especially if it’s a cultural norm or personal preference. However, if you have hesitations about making this request, rest assured that appraisers are trained professionals who encounter various home environments daily. They are well aware of the importance of maintaining cleanliness and professionalism during their assessments.
Opting for appraisers to wear shoe covers, instead of asking them to take off their shoes, is a practical alternative.  The appraisers at Chicagoland Appraisals will come prepared with shoe covers to protect your floors. These shoe covers are a standard part of their equipment, ensuring that your home remains clean and undamaged throughout the appraisal process.

Ultimately, the goal is to ensure that the on-site portion of the appraisal process is conducted with your comfort and convenience in mind. We understand the importance of respecting your preferences and strive to minimize any potential discomfort during the appointment.
