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

It's very hard to be objective about your home because of your emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Nancy J. Shilling Real Estate Appraisals will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract many interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value -- not just how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value judgement than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

A preferred money saver for homeowners is to get the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're veterans in helping customers just like you rid yourselves of unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

Lets say your home is not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This means you're going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. The faster you take care of things like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. Getting a professional appraisal from Nancy J. Shilling Real Estate Appraisals is your chief weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

This can be be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also annoying from a cash flow point of view. A professional appraisal from Nancy J. Shilling Real Estate Appraisals can help you reinstate your HELOC.
