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

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Premier Real Estate Appraisal, 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 property will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. The appraisal is 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 you think your home is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

A popular way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is 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. We are experts in helping homeowners just like you do away with unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a region that's going down. That only means you're probably paying more taxes than you should. 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. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Premier Real Estate Appraisal is your best weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in or near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow viewpoint, and negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Premier Real Estate Appraisal can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Would you like a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you want a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for verity? An appraiser from Premier Real Estate Appraisal can go out and check the subject and comparables in a field review. Or, if you need it ASAP, 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.

Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal? Premier Real Estate Appraisal can help with that too. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may need to use this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
