Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner
Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price -- not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value judgement than yours.
Appraisals to cancel PMI
An attractive way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI removed 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 amount is down below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. We are seasoned in helping homeowners just like you rid themselves of undesirable PMI insurance.
Challenging a property tax assessment
If you live in an area that is declining or is not appreciating as much as other properties nearby, your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only means you're most likely paying more taxes than you should. 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. An appraisal from Phoenix Valuations, LLC is your #1 weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
HELOC recently frozen?
Your lender might just decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be difficult from a cash flow viewpoint, and damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An appraisal from Phoenix Valuations, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.
We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services
Do you need a professional to double-check your appraisal for efficiency, or do you desire a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Phoenix Valuations, LLC offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comparables in question. Or, if you need it immediately, we can provide you with a 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 desire to use this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
