Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner (FSBO)
It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you probably 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. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It gives you something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value assessment than yours.
Appraisals to remove PMI
PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A popular money saver for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. We are qualified in helping folks just like you rid themselves of unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Getting an appraisal report from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is your best weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.
