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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, 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. A professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers. It's something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, and not just how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value report than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your property, 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. At Good Appraisal Services, Inc., we're experienced in helping customers just like you dismiss unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

If you live in an area that is declining or is not appreciating as much as other properties close by, your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only means you are probably paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. An expert appraisal from Good Appraisal Services, Inc. is your chief weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in or near a declining area. This can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow viewpoint, and detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Good Appraisal Services, Inc. can provide you with a professional appraisal to help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you wish a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for accuracy? We can go out and check the subject and comparables in question in a field review. Or, if you need it ASAP, we can provide 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 with that too. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may need to make use of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
