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. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc., are objective. We'll tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value -- not just how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value assessment than yours.
Appraisals to remove PMI
Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a preferred way to cut expenses for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. We are seasoned in helping clients just like you do away with unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenging property tax assessments
Lets say your home is not appreciating as much as other properties nearby -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of things like this, the better. An appraisal report from Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. is your #1 weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.
HELOC recently frozen?
Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender may just decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in or near a declining area. This can this be troublesome from a cash flow point of view, and harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.
