For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing Services
Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It's something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, and not just how much your home is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value estimation than yours.
Appraisals to remove PMI
PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. 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. Once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're qualified in helping homeowners just like you remove undesirable PMI insurance.
Challenging property tax assessments
Lets say you live in an area that's going down -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This only means you're paying 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 things like this, the better. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. is your chief weapon.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?
If your property is in a declining area, your lender might just decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also unsuitable from a cash flow viewpoint. Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. can provide you with efficient appraisal that will help you reinstate your HELOC.
Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?
Have you just been given a copy of your appraisal and you'd like to have a seasoned expert double-check it for precision or do you need a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. offers field reviews where we go out and check the subject and comps. Or, if you need it in a rush, 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? We can help with that too. While typically requested by banks, you may wish to exercise this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
