Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Appraisal-One will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a potential 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. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable money saver for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. We are seasoned in helping folks just like you remove unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if your house not appreciating as much as other properties close by. That only means you are most likely 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 things like this, the better off you'll be. Getting an appraisal report from Appraisal-One is your strongest weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender just might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is close to a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be unsuitable from a cash flow angle, but it can be destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Appraisal-One can provide you with a professional appraisal that will help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.
