Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about 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 potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract interested buyers. It gives you something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, and not just you saying how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

A popular way to cut costs 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". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. We're seasoned in helping folks just like you delete undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house is not appreciating as much as other houses nearby. That means you're most likely 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. Getting an appraisal from Herrin Appraisal Company is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your house is in a declining area, your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be annoying from a cash flow viewpoint, and bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Herrin Appraisal Company can provide you with a professional appraisal that will help you reinstate your HELOC.

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Have you just received a copy of your appraisal and you'd wish to have a professional double-check it for preciseness or do you want a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? We can go out and check the subject and comps in a field review. If you're in a rush, we'll provide 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? Herrin Appraisal Company can help you with that. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may need to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
