2 of these sales were cash, 2 were financed. Appraisals are still needed for half of the luxury homes sold in Barrington Hills this year to date. Financing can fail if appraisals come in too low. Not all buyers are willing to bridge the difference and many sellers are not willing to budge on price. This becomes harder as you reach the top prices. Lack of sales makes it extremely hard to find comparable properties and an appraiser uses these to base his price on. For cash it truly comes down to how much is a buyer willing to pay and assumes he does not want his contract contingent on an appraisal.
