For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services
It's very hard to be objective about your home because you most likely 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. A professional appraisal is very crucial as a 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. It's something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, and not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value report than yours.
PMI Removal Appraisals
Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a fashionable 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 property. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. Phoenix Valuations, LLC is seasoned in helping people just like you abolish unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.
Challenging Maricopa county's assessment of your property
Lets say your home is not appreciating as much as other properties close to yours -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This means you are most likely 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. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from Phoenix Valuations, LLC is your best weapon.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?
If your house is near a declining area, your lender just might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also difficult from a cash flow angle. Phoenix Valuations, LLC can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.
Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?
Would you like a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you want a seasoned professional to double-check your appraisal for preciseness? We can go out and check the subject and comps in question in a field review. If you need it ASAP, we'll 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? Phoenix Valuations, LLC can help you with that. While typically requested by banks, you may wish to utilize this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
