For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Phoenix Valuations, LLC are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to cut costs for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your property, 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 customers just like you do away with unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a region that's declining. That only means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. The sooner 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 expert appraisal from Phoenix Valuations, LLC is your perfect weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

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 property is close to a declining area. This can this be inopportune from a cash flow standpoint, and detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An efficient appraisal from Phoenix Valuations, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.
