Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner
It's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at G and R Appraisal Service, are objective. We'll tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value -- not just how much your house is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value judgement than yours.
PMI Removal Appraisals
An attractive way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down 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 canceled from your loan. G and R Appraisal Service is seasoned in helping people just like you dismiss unwanted PMI insurance.
Challenge property tax assessments
Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a local area that is declining or is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby. That only means you are probably paying more taxes than you should. The sooner 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 expert appraisal from G and R Appraisal Service is your chief weapon.
HELOC recently frozen?
Your lender just may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is close to a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow standpoint, and bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. G and R Appraisal Service can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.
