For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Herrin Appraisal Company are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers. It gives you something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just how much you think your house is worth. Interested 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 estimation than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

A popular way to cut expenses 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 house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. We're experienced in helping people just like you get rid of unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

Lets say your home is not appreciating as much as other properties nearby -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That only means you are probably paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Herrin Appraisal Company is your chief weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender may just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in or near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also inopportune from a cash flow viewpoint. Herrin Appraisal Company can provide you with efficient appraisal to help you reinstate your HELOC.

Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need an expert to double-check your appraisal for preciseness, or do you need a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from Herrin Appraisal Company can go out and check the subject and comps in question in a field review. If you need it ASAP, we'll provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.
