For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services
It's very hard to be objective about your own house because of your emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Real Estate Appraisal Services of WI, Inc. will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers know that 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.
Need to remove PMI?
Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a popular way to save money for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your property, 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. Real Estate Appraisal Services of WI, Inc. is experts in helping homeowners just like you dismiss unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenge Tax Assessment
Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your home is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby. This means you're paying higher taxes than you should be paying. 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. Getting an appraisal from Real Estate Appraisal Services of WI, Inc. is your best weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.
Recently got a freeze your HELOC?
Your lender may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow point of view, and harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Real Estate Appraisal Services of WI, Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.
