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

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Good Appraisal Services, Inc. are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a likely 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 concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, and not just how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

A fashionable way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled 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 amount is less than 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. Good Appraisal Services, Inc. is experienced in helping people just like you get rid of unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a local area that's declining. That means you are paying more taxes than you should. 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. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from Good Appraisal Services, Inc. is your best weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender just might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be inopportune from a cash flow angle, and bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Good Appraisal Services, Inc. can provide you with efficient appraisal that will help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Have you just gotten a copy of your appraisal and you'd prefer to have a seasoned professional double-check it for precision 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 question in a field review. Or, if you're in a hurry, 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.

Need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? We can help you with that Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may want to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
