Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner
Since you have an emotional attachment to your own 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. A professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value conclusion than yours.
Need to cancel PMI?
A popular way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated 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 property. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. We're experts in helping homeowners just like you rid themselves of unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenging Orange county's assessment of your property
Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house not appreciating as much as other houses nearby. This means you're most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is your chief weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
HELOC recently frozen?
Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in a declining area. Not only can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow point of view, but it can be damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out.
