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

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Maider Appraisals, will be 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 home will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, not just you saying how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to cut costs for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Maider Appraisals, we're experts in helping homeowners just like you dismiss unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge Hillsborough county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. This means you are probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An appraisal from Maider Appraisals is your chief weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is near a declining area. This can be be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also disadvantageous from a cash flow point of view. Maider Appraisals can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with a professional appraisal.

We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for preciseness, or do you desire a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Maider Appraisals offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comps in question. 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.

We can also provide you with a a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have in your possession. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may need to exercise this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
