Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc ., are objective. We 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 attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, and not just you saying how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value report than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable way to save money for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. 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 removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc . is experienced in helping clients just like you do away with undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Lets say you live in a region that's going down -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This only means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The earlier you take care of things like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An appraisal report from Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc . is your #1 weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is near a declining area. Not only can this be disadvantageous from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc . can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with a professional appraisal.

Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for verity, or do you need a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc . can go out and check the subject and comps in question in a field review. Or, if you need it immediately, we can provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have had in the past. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may wish to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
