For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services
It's very hard to be objective about your house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Appraisers Now, 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 very valuable as a 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 interested buyers. It's something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just how much your home is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value conclusion than yours.
PMI Removal Appraisals
Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to save money for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're seasoned in helping people just like you dismiss unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenge property tax assessments
Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a region that is going down. This only means you're paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The faster you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An appraisal report from Appraisers Now, Inc. is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
Recently got a freeze your HELOC?
If your house is close to a declining area, your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also difficult from a cash flow viewpoint. Appraisers Now, Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.
We Also Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services
Have you just accepted a copy of your appraisal and you'd wish to have a professional double-check it for accuracy or do you want a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? We can go out and check the subject and comps in a field review. 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.
Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal? Appraisers Now, Inc. can help with that too. While usually requested by banks, you may want to take advantage of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
