For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Preferred Appraisers, Inc. are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract interested buyers. It's something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, not just how much your home is worth. Potential 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 conclusion than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a popular way to save money for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Preferred Appraisers, Inc., we're seasoned in helping consumers just like you dismiss unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging Gloucester county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a region that is going down or not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. That means you're paying more taxes than you should. 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. An expert appraisal from Preferred Appraisers, Inc. is your strongest weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your home is in a declining area, your lender may just decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be inconvenient from a cash flow point of view, and damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Preferred Appraisers, Inc. can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with a professional appraisal.

We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Have you just been handed a copy of your appraisal and you would prefer to have a seasoned professional double-check it for efficiency or do you want a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we will go out and check the subject and comparables. If you're in a hurry, we'll provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

Need a retrospective review of an appraisal? We can help with that too. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may need to take advantage of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
