For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Nancy J. Shilling Real Estate Appraisals, will be 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 house will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It gives you something tangible to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's price -- not just you saying how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable money saver for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is down 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. Nancy J. Shilling Real Estate Appraisals is experts in helping people just like you do away with unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a region that is going down or is not appreciating as much as other houses nearby. That only means you're most likely paying more taxes than you should. 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. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Nancy J. Shilling Real Estate Appraisals is your perfect weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

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 near a declining area. Not only can this be annoying from a cash flow point of view, but it can be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Nancy J. Shilling Real Estate Appraisals can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Do you need a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for verity, or do you desire a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Nancy J. Shilling Real Estate Appraisals offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comps.
