Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It's something concrete to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, not just how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

An attractive money saver for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your property, 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. We're seasoned in helping folks just like you get rid of unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

If you live in a region that is declining or not appreciating as much as other properties close by, your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That means you're probably 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. An appraisal from Advanced Appraisal Services, LLC is your strongest weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be difficult and inconvenient 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. An appraisal from Advanced Appraisal Services, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.
