We at Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. understand the particular needs of a consumer looking for appraisal services.

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. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc., are objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It's something tangible to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, and not just you saying how much your home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value report than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a fashionable way to cut costs for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're experienced in helping consumers just like you rid yourselves of undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge Orange county's assessment of your property

Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other houses nearby -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. The quicker you take care of things like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An expert appraisal from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is your perfect 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 just might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is close to a declining area. This can this be disadvantageous from a cash flow angle, and bad for 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.

Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Have you just been given a copy of your appraisal and you would like to have a seasoned professional double-check it for accuracy or do you desire a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comps. Or, if you need it immediately, we can 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. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may wish to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
