Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner (FSBO)
It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you most likely 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 very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers. It's something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, and not just you saying how much your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value judgement than yours.
Appraisals to cancel PMI
Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to save money for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're veterans in helping homeowners just like you remove unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenging property tax assessments
If you live in an area that is declining or is not appreciating as much as other houses close by, your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This means you're most likely 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 things like this, the better. An expert appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is your perfect weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?
Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might just make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is close to a declining area. Not only can this be difficult from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.
