Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner (FSBO)
Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc., will be objective. We'll 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 interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It's something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, not just how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value estimation than yours.
Need to cancel PMI?
PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A popular way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are seasoned in helping folks just like you abolish unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenge property tax assessments
Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby. This only means you are probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of a matter like this, the better. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is your best weapon.
HELOC recently frozen?
Your lender might just decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also troublesome from a cash flow point of view. An expert appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.
Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?
Do you need a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for verity, or do you desire a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comparables in question. Or, if you need it ASAP, 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? We can help with that too. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may desire to make use of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
