For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services
Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract many interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, not just how much your house is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value opinion than yours.
PMI Removal Appraisals
PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable money saver for homeowners is to get the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is experienced in helping consumers just like you delete unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.
Challenging a property tax assessment
If you live in a local area that is going down or is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby, your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. 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 earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. Getting an appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is your perfect weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
Recently got a freeze your HELOC?
Your lender may just make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in or near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be disadvantageous from a cash flow angle, but it can be detrimental 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 a professional appraisal.
