For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing Services
Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, 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 will tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price -- not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value conclusion than yours.
Need to remove PMI?
A popular way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled 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 below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. We are qualified in helping folks just like you dismiss unneeded PMI insurance.

Getting a professional appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is your number one weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
Recently got a freeze your HELOC?
If your house is close to a declining area, your lender may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value.

An appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.
