At Good Appraisal Services, Inc., we understand the unique needs of a homeowner looking for appraisal services.

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

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Good Appraisal Services, Inc., are objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price -- 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 a professional appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a popular money saver for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are seasoned in helping folks just like you delete unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Lets say you live in a region that is declining -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This only means you are going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. Getting an expert appraisal from Good Appraisal Services, Inc. is your chief weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

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

We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for preciseness, or do you want a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? 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. While typically requested by banks, you may want to take advantage of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
