Pre-listing Services/For Sale by OwnerIt's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It gives you something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value judgement than yours.
Challenge property tax assessmentsLet's say your house is not appreciating as much as other properties nearby -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. Getting an expert appraisal from Appraisers of America, LLC. is your strongest weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
PMI Removal AppraisalsPMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A popular way to cut expenses for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. Appraisers of America, LLC. is qualified in helping clients just like you remove unwanted PMI insurance.
HELOC recently frozen?Your lender might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be disadvantageous from a cash flow angle, but it can be damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Appraisers of America, LLC. can provide you with an expert appraisal that will help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.
