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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Maider Appraisals will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show the 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 know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive way to cut expenses for homeowners is getting the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. 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 eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. Maider Appraisals is experts in helping people just like you delete unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if your house not appreciating as much as other houses close to yours. That only means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Maider Appraisals is your perfect weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also disadvantageous from a cash flow standpoint. Maider Appraisals can provide you with a professional appraisal to help you reinstate your HELOC.
