For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract interested buyers. It's something tangible to show your 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 opinion than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to save money for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your home. 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 experienced in helping homeowners just like you rid themselves of unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a region that is going down or not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. This means you are most likely 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 off you'll be. Getting an appraisal report from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is your strongest weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is close to a declining area. This can be be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also disadvantageous from a cash flow point of view. An appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Have you just accepted a copy of your appraisal and you would wish to have a seasoned appraiser double-check it for verity or do you want a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal?
