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. 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 an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract buyers. It's something tangible to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value -- not just how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

A fashionable way to cut expenses 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". Once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. Elite Appraisal Services is experts in helping consumers just like you do away with unneeded PMI insurance.

When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services is your chief weapon.
