Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner (FSBO)
It's very hard to be objective about your home because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract interested buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value assessment than yours.
Need to remove PMI?
A popular way to save money 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". Your monthly payments will go down 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. We are experienced in helping consumers just like you rid yourselves of undesirable PMI insurance.
Challenge property tax assessments
Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This means you're probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of things like this, the better. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is your number one weapon.
Recently got a freeze your HELOC?
If your property is close to a declining area, your lender might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be unsuitable from a cash flow standpoint, and harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.
Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services
Do you need a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for accuracy, or do you want a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. can go out and check the subject and comps in question in a field review. 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.
We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have had done before. While usually requested by banks, you may need to exploit this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
