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

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you probably 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 a very important negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract many interested buyers. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value -- not just how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Appraisals 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 house. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. Amerappraise, LLC is experienced in helping homeowners just like you dismiss unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of things like this, the better. Getting an appraisal from Amerappraise, LLC is your #1 weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your home is in a declining area, your lender just may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow viewpoint, and harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Amerappraise, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you wish a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire an expert to double-check your appraisal for accuracy? Amerappraise, LLC offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comparables in question. If you're in a hurry, 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? Amerappraise, LLC can help you with that. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may wish to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
