For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you probably have an 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 a very important negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract many interested buyers. It's something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, not just how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

An attractive 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 is below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. Preferred Appraisers, Inc. is seasoned in helping clients just like you dismiss undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

If you live in a region that is going down or not appreciating as much as other homes close by, your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only means you are going to pay 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 off you'll be. A professional appraisal from Preferred Appraisers, Inc. is your perfect weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your house is in a declining area, your lender may just make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be troublesome from a cash flow point of view, but it can be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Preferred Appraisers, Inc. can provide you with a professional appraisal to help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.
