Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about 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 very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers. It gives you something tangible to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value -- not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value judgement than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a popular money saver for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are experienced in helping homeowners just like you delete unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if your home is not appreciating as much as other properties close to yours. That only means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. Getting an appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is your best weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is close to a declining area. This can this be inconvenient from a cash flow viewpoint, 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.

We Also Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Have you just received a copy of your appraisal and you'd wish to have an expert double-check it for precision or do you desire a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. offers field reviews where we go out and check the subject and comps. If you need it ASAP, we'll 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 you may have had done before. While usually requested by banks, you may desire to utilize this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
