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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, 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 price to sell at so your house will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It's something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value -- not just how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

A preferred way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down 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 canceled from your loan. We're seasoned in helping homeowners just like you abolish undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if your home is not appreciating as much as other houses nearby. This means you're probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An appraisal from Good Appraisal Services, Inc. is your strongest weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in 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 troublesome from a cash flow point of view. Good Appraisal Services, Inc. can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.

We Also Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you wish a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for accuracy? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comps in question. If you're 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.

Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? Good Appraisal Services, Inc. can help you with that. While usually requested by banks, you may want to take advantage of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
