Need help deciding the value of your house in or near Scottsdale, AZ?
At Phoenix Valuations, LLC, we understand the unique needs of a consumer after appraisal services. While our usual business 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.
For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services
It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Phoenix Valuations, LLC are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract buyers. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value -- not just you saying how much your home is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value estimation than yours.
Appraisals to remove PMI
A fashionable way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is 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 are experienced in helping consumers just like you rid yourselves of unwanted PMI insurance.
Challenge property tax assessments
Lets say you live in an area that is going down -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The quicker you take care of a matter 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 from Phoenix Valuations, LLC is your number one weapon.
HELOC recently frozen?
Your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in or near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also annoying from a cash flow standpoint. Phoenix Valuations, LLC can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.
Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?
Have you just been handed a copy of your appraisal and you would prefer to have a seasoned expert double-check it for precision or do you want a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we will go out and check the subject and comparables in question. 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. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may need to use this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
