As our valued client, we will give you extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to more clearly understand what we do and how we document the results of our analysis.
For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services
Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc., are objective. We 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 a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract many interested buyers. It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, not just how much your house is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value assessment than yours.
Appraisals to remove PMI
A fashionable way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are seasoned in helping folks just like you do away with unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenge Orange county's assessment of your property
Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This means you are going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. The earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. A professional appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is your best weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.
Recently got a freeze your HELOC?
Your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also unsuitable from a cash flow viewpoint. Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. can provide you with efficient appraisal that will help you reinstate your HELOC.
Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?
Would you wish a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you need a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for preciseness? We can go out and check the subject and comparables in a field review. If you need it immediately, we'll provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.
We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have had done before. While usually requested by banks, you may desire to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
