Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. The appraisal is something concrete 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. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value opinion than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

A preferred way to cut costs 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". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. At , we're experienced in helping clients just like you do away with unwanted PMI insurance.

Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. An expert appraisal from is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
