Homeowner Appraisal Services
Homeowners need appraisals or consulting for a variety of reasons, including a mortgage refinance, home equity loans, Pre-listing services, or PMI removal. When you order an appraisal from us, you can be assured that you will get the best in professional service, courtesy, and quality.
Refinance / Home Equity
Be sure that you request us if your lender asks you for YOUR choice of appraisal firms. More than likely we are already on their "approved list", and if not we will quickly provide your lender with the necessary documentation to become approved.
For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing Services
It may be hard to be objective about your own home. A Professional Appraiser is unbiased and will tell you what you need to know. We can provide consulting to let you know what improvements will give you the greastest return on your investment. Or you may want a professional appraisal to help you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers. An appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It's an independent third party's unbiased opinion of your home's value.
PMI Removal Appraisals
A popular money saver for homeowners in the last few years is to get the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan amount 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, which will make your monthly payments decrease.
