Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner
It's very hard to be objective about your house because of your emotional attachment to 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 selling price so your property will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value opinion than yours.
Appraisals to remove PMI
A preferred way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. Phoenix Valuations, LLC is seasoned in helping folks just like you do away with unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenging a property tax assessment
Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a region that is declining or not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. That means you're paying more taxes than you should. The sooner you take care of things like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Phoenix Valuations, LLC is your chief weapon.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?
Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is near a declining area. This can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow standpoint, and 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 like a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you want an expert to double-check your appraisal for precision? An appraiser from Phoenix Valuations, LLC can go out and check the subject and comparables in a field review. Or, if you need it ASAP, we can provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.
Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? Phoenix Valuations, LLC can help with that too. While typically requested by banks, you may desire to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
