For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services
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. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value -- not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value report than yours.
PMI Removal Appraisals
Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to cut costs for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are veterans in helping people just like you dismiss unnecessary PMI insurance.
Challenging Orange county's assessment of your property
Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in an area that's declining or is not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. This means you're most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The quicker you take care of things like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An appraisal report from ASAP Appraisal Firm is your perfect weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
HELOC recently frozen?
If your property is close to a declining area, your lender may 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 troublesome from a cash flow point of view, and damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. ASAP Appraisal Firm can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with a professional appraisal.
We Also Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services
Do you need a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for precision, or do you need a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? We can go out and check the subject and comparables in question in a field review. Or, if you're in a rush, we can 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? ASAP Appraisal Firm can help you with that. While typically requested by banks, you may desire to exploit this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
