For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services
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'll 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 property will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. It gives you something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value opinion than yours.
Need to cancel PMI?
A preferred way to cut expenses for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated 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 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. Good Appraisal Services, Inc. is qualified in helping folks just like you delete unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenge a property tax assessment
Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a local area that's declining. That only means you are most likely paying more taxes than you should. The quicker you take care of things like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from Good Appraisal Services, Inc. is your #1 weapon.
HELOC recently frozen?
Your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be unsuitable from a cash flow point of view, and negative on 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.
