At Amerappraise, LLC, we understand the unique needs of a consumer looking for appraisal services. While our typical business clients understand the appraisal process and standard reporting formats, you as a consumer will get extra customer service in the form of an explanation of the process and even special consumer-friendly reporting forms if the assignment allows for them.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Amerappraise, LLC are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value assessment than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get 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 a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. We're seasoned in helping consumers just like you do away with unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

Lets say you live in a local area that's declining -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This means you're going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. The earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An expert appraisal from Amerappraise, LLC is your strongest weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is near a declining area. This can this be unsuitable from a cash flow viewpoint, and bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. A professional appraisal from Amerappraise, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Have you just received a copy of your appraisal and you would prefer to have a professional double-check it for preciseness or do you need a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we will go out and check the subject and comparables in question. If you're in a rush, we'll provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? Amerappraise, LLC can help you with that. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may need to take advantage of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
