For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services
Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract interested buyers. It's something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, not just you saying how much your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value opinion than yours.
Appraisals 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". Once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc., we're veterans in helping consumers just like you rid themselves of unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.
Challenge a property tax assessment
Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only means you are paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. is your strongest weapon.
Recently got a freeze your HELOC?
Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in or near a declining area. Not only can this be inopportune from a cash flow angle, but it can be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. can provide you with efficient appraisal that will help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.
We Also Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services
Would you like a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you need a professional to double-check your appraisal for preciseness? We can go out and check the subject and comps in a field review.
