For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Real Property Appraisal LLC will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract many interested buyers. It's something tangible to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value -- not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

A fashionable way to cut costs 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 less than 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. We're experienced in helping folks just like you rid themselves of unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a region that's declining. That only means you are most likely paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Real Property Appraisal LLC is your strongest weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender just might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also difficult from a cash flow point of view. Real Property Appraisal LLC can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.
