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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your 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 price to sell at so your home will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It's something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, and not just you saying how much your home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value judgement than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

An attractive money saver for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is 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. At Amerappraise, LLC, we're seasoned in helping folks just like you abolish undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in an area that's going down or is not appreciating as much as other properties close to yours. This only means you're paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from Amerappraise, LLC is your chief weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is near a declining area. Not only can this be disadvantageous from a cash flow angle, but it can be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Amerappraise, LLC can provide you with a professional appraisal to help you reinstate your HELOC.

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Would you prefer a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for efficiency? In a field review we will go out and check the subject and comps in question. Or, if you need it in a rush, we can provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

Need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? We can help with that too. While typically requested by banks, you may want to take advantage of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
