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. 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 important as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract interested buyers. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value -- not just you saying how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value assessment than yours.
Need to cancel PMI?
A preferred way to save money for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. Bullseye Valuation Group is experts in helping customers just like you abolish unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.
Challenging property tax assessments
Lets say you live in a region that's declining -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. The earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from Bullseye Valuation Group is your perfect weapon.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?
Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is near a declining area. This can be be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also annoying from a cash flow standpoint. An appraisal from Bullseye Valuation Group can help you reinstate your HELOC.
