For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing Services
Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Bruce W. Reyle & Company Real Estate Appraisers and Consultants, are objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable 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 you saying 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 seasoned appraiser's value estimation than yours.
Appraisals to remove PMI
Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to save money 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 your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. We are experienced in helping people just like you abolish unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenge property tax assessments
Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other houses close by -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That means you are paying more taxes than you should. The earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. Getting an appraisal report from Bruce W. Reyle & Company Real Estate Appraisers and Consultants is your perfect weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.
HELOC recently frozen?
Your lender might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow angle, and destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Bruce W. Reyle & Company Real Estate Appraisers and Consultants can provide you with efficient appraisal to help you reinstate your HELOC.
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 want an expert to double-check your appraisal for precision? We can go out and check the subject and comps in a field review. If you need it in a rush, we'll provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.
Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? Bruce W. Reyle & Company Real Estate Appraisers and Consultants can help you with that. While typically requested by banks, you may wish to use this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
