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

It's very hard to be objective about your home because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. A professional appraiser is objective and 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 property will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It's something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value -- not just you saying how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a fashionable money saver for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. We're qualified in helping customers just like you abolish unneeded PMI insurance.
