For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services
It's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Appraisal Associates & Consultants, Inc. are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract many interested buyers. It gives you something tangible to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value -- not just how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value opinion than yours.
Need to remove PMI?
Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a fashionable way to save money for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Appraisal Associates & Consultants, Inc., we're experienced in helping consumers just like you rid themselves of unwanted PMI insurance.
Challenge property tax assessments
Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house is not appreciating as much as other houses close by. This means you're probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Appraisal Associates & Consultants, Inc. is your perfect weapon.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?
Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in or near a declining area. This can be be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also disadvantageous from a cash flow standpoint. Appraisal Associates & Consultants, Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.
We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services
Do you need a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for efficiency, or do you need a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comps. If you're in a hurry, we'll provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.
We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have had in the past. While usually requested by banks, you may need to exploit this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
