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

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It's something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, not just how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to cut expenses for homeowners.
