For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services
It's very hard to be objective about your house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It's something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, and not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value judgement than yours.
PMI Removal Appraisals
Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a popular way to cut expenses for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. At Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc., we're experts in helping homeowners just like you delete unwanted PMI insurance.
Challenge Seminole county's assessment of your property
Lets say you live in a region that is going down -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That means you're probably paying more taxes than you should. The quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. is your #1 weapon.
Recently got a freeze your HELOC?
If your property is in or near a declining area, your lender might choose 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 and inconvenient from a cash flow standpoint, and destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An expert appraisal from Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.
Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?
Have you just accepted a copy of your appraisal and you would prefer to have a veteran appraiser double-check it for preciseness or do you want a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we will go out and check the subject and comps in question. 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.
We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have in your possession. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may desire to use this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
