Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, 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 very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract buyers. It's something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value report than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your house, 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. We are experts in helping people just like you get rid of unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

If you live in a region that is declining or not appreciating as much as other homes nearby, your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only 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 off you'll be. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from Maider Appraisals is your perfect weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

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

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Have you just gotten a copy of your appraisal and you'd prefer to have a professional double-check it for efficiency or do you desire a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we will go out and check the subject and comparables in question. Or, if you need it ASAP, we can provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

Need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? We can help with that too. While usually requested by banks, you may wish to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
