For Sale By Owner/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. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract buyers. It gives you something tangible to show your 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. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value judgement than yours.
PMI Removal Appraisals
A popular way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Phoenix Valuations, LLC, we're veterans in helping folks just like you do away with unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.
Challenging Maricopa county's assessment of your property
If you live in an area that is declining or not appreciating as much as other properties close to yours, your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That only means you are most likely paying more taxes than you should. The sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. Getting an appraisal report from Phoenix Valuations, LLC is your best weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.
