For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing Services
Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Appraisal Advantage, Inc. will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It's something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, not just how much you think 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. A preferred money saver for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. Appraisal Advantage, Inc. is qualified in helping consumers just like you delete unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenge Lake county's assessment of your property
Lets say you live in a local area that's going down -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That only means you are probably paying 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 Appraisal Advantage, Inc. is your chief weapon.
Recently got a freeze your HELOC?
Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is near a declining area.

Appraisal Advantage, Inc. can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.
