But as a consumer,we will give you extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to more fully understand what we do and how we document the results of our analysis.
Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner
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 very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, and not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value estimation than yours.
Need to remove PMI?
Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to save money for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. We are experts in helping consumers just like you do away with unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenge Riverside county's assessment of your property
Lets say your home is not appreciating as much as other properties nearby -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only means you are most likely paying more taxes than you should. The faster you take care of things like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An appraisal from Good Appraisal Services, Inc. is your number one weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?
Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in or near a declining area. Not only can this be troublesome from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An expert appraisal from Good Appraisal Services, Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.
We Also Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services
Would you like a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire an expert to double-check your appraisal for preciseness? In a field review we will go out and check the subject and comparables in question. If you need it immediately, 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.
Need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? We can help with that too. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may wish to utilize this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
