For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services
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. A professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract many interested buyers. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value -- not just you saying how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value conclusion than yours.
Need to cancel PMI?
PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A popular way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. We are experts in helping clients just like you abolish unnecessary PMI insurance.
Challenge property tax assessments
If you live in a local area that is declining or not appreciating as much as other houses close to yours, your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This means you are paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better. A professional appraisal from Acanda Appraisal Co. is your #1 weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
Recently got a freeze your HELOC?
Your lender just might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also difficult from a cash flow standpoint. Acanda Appraisal Co. can help you reinstate your HELOC.
Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services
Would you prefer a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you need a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for efficiency? Acanda Appraisal Co. offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comparables in question. Or, if you need it immediately, we can provide 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 want to take advantage of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
