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

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Elite Appraisal Services, will be objective. We'll 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 a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's price -- not just you saying how much your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value estimation than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. 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. Elite Appraisal Services is qualified in helping homeowners just like you do away with unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a region that is declining or is not appreciating as much as other homes close by. That only means you are probably paying more taxes than you should. The sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. A professional appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services is your strongest weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your home is in a declining area, your lender just might decide 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 annoying from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services can help you reinstate your HELOC.
