We at Appraisal Professionals understand the special needs of a consumer seeking appraisal services.

But as a consumer,you'll receive extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to better understand what we do and how we present the results of our analysis.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner (FSBO)

It's very hard to be objective about your house 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 selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to cut expenses for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. Appraisal Professionals is experienced in helping consumers just like you delete undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a local area that's declining. That means you are most likely paying more taxes than you should. The sooner 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 Appraisal Professionals is your chief weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender may just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is near a declining area -- 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 point of view. Appraisal Professionals can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Would you prefer a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for verity? In a field review we will go out and check the subject and comparables. Or, if you're in a hurry, we can provide 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 usually requested by banks, you may want to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
