For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about 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 property will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. It's something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value -- not just how much you think your house 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 estimation than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

A fashionable way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are experienced in helping consumers just like you delete unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other houses close by -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only means you're paying more taxes than you should. The earlier you take care of things like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An appraisal report from Appraisal Professionals is your perfect weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your property is close to a declining area, your lender might make the decision 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 inconvenient from a cash flow point of view. Appraisal Professionals can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.

We Also Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need an expert to double-check your appraisal for verity, or do you desire a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from Appraisal Professionals can go out and check the subject and comps in question in a field review. Or, if you're in a hurry, we can provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

We can also provide you with a a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have in your possession. While typically requested by banks, you may want to take advantage of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
