For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Good Appraisal Services, Inc. will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract many interested buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, and not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value opinion than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a popular way to cut expenses for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your home, 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 qualified in helping clients just like you rid themselves of undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in an area that is going down. This only means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. An appraisal report from Good Appraisal Services, Inc. is your #1 weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in or near a declining area. Not only can this be inconvenient from a cash flow angle, but it can be detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Good Appraisal Services, Inc. can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.

Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Have you just received a copy of your appraisal and you'd wish to have a professional double-check it for efficiency or do you want a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from Good Appraisal Services, Inc. can go out and check the subject and comps in a field review. Or, if you're in a rush, 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 a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have had done before. While usually requested by banks, you may wish to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
