For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Appraisal Professionals, will be objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract interested buyers. It's something tangible to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, and not just how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A popular way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan is below 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 Professionals, we're veterans in helping consumers just like you do away with unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge Hays county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your home is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby. That 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 faster you take care of a matter like this, the better. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Appraisal Professionals is your chief weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is close to 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 inopportune from a cash flow standpoint. Appraisal Professionals can help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Also Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you like a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you want an expert to double-check your appraisal for preciseness? Appraisal Professionals offers field reviews where we go out and check the subject and comparables. If you need it in a rush, we'll provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

Need a retrospective review of an appraisal? We can help with that too. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may desire to use this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
