For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your house 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. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract many interested buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value -- 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 more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value assessment than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to save money for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan 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. We're experts in helping folks just like you do away with unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your home is not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. That means you're paying more taxes than you should. The sooner 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. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from Bruce W. Reyle Commercial and Residential Real Estate Appraisers & Consultants is your perfect weapon.

An efficient appraisal from Bruce W. Reyle Commercial and Residential Real Estate Appraisers & Consultants can help you reinstate your HELOC.
