Attention homeowners in Scottsdale and Maricopa County: Need an appraisal?
The top reasons AZ homeowners need Phoenix Valuations, LLC:
Do you own a home in or near Scottsdale? Do you need help determining the value of your real estate?
We at Phoenix Valuations, LLC understand the individual needs of a consumer in need of appraisal services. While our usual clients understand the appraisal process and standard reporting formats, you as a consumer will get extra service in the form of an explanation of the process and even special consumer-friendly reporting forms if the assignment allows for them.
Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner
Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Phoenix Valuations, LLC will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It's something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value -- not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value estimation than yours.
Need to remove PMI?
Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a preferred way to cut costs for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. We're veterans in helping people just like you remove unnecessary PMI insurance.
Challenge a property tax assessment
Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a region that is going down. This means you're going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. The earlier you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An appraisal from Phoenix Valuations, LLC is your chief 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 choose 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 and inconvenient from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Phoenix Valuations, LLC can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.
We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services
Would you prefer a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you want a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for verity? In a field review we will go out and check the subject and comparables in question. If you need it in a rush, we'll 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 done before. While typically requested by banks, you may need to exploit this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
