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. The professional appraisers at Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract buyers. It gives you something tangible to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, and not just how much your home is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value report than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

A fashionable way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get 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 amount is down below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. We're experienced in helping customers just like you delete unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Lets say your home is not appreciating as much as other houses close by -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This means you're most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The faster you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is your best weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender just might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also inopportune from a cash flow viewpoint. Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. can provide you with a professional appraisal that will help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.
