For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services
Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about 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. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. 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 your home is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value opinion than yours.
PMI Removal Appraisals
PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. At Good Appraisal Services, Inc., we're seasoned in helping homeowners just like you get rid of unnecessary PMI insurance.

When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from Good Appraisal Services, Inc. is your best weapon.
