Own a house in or near Orlando, FL and need help deciding the value of it?
We at Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. understand the special needs of a customer in need of appraisal services. Our regular business clients get the appraisal process and the customary documents we provide. But as a consumer,we will give you extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to better understand what we do and how we report our conclusions.
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. Our professional appraisers at Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract interested buyers. It's something tangible to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price -- not just how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value conclusion than yours.
Appraisals to cancel PMI
Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a fashionable way to cut expenses for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. At Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc., we're experts in helping folks just like you delete unnecessary PMI insurance.
Challenge property tax assessments
Lets say you live in a local area that is going down -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. The earlier you take care of things like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is your perfect weapon.
HELOC recently frozen?
If your property is in a declining area, your lender might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow angle. Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with a professional appraisal.
We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services
Would you wish a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for precision? Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. offers field reviews where we go out and check the subject and comparables. Or, if you need it ASAP, we can provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.
Need a retrospective review of an appraisal? We can help with that too. While usually requested by banks, you may wish to utilize this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
