For Sale by Owner/Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at My Appraisal Office LLC, will be objective. We'll 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 home will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It's something concrete to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's market value, not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in an area that is going down or is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby. That 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. Getting an appraisal from My Appraisal Office LLC is your strongest weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Appraisals to remove PMI

An attractive money saver for homeowners is getting the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are veterans in helping homeowners just like you rid themselves of unneeded PMI insurance.

HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender just may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in or near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be inopportune from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An efficient appraisal from My Appraisal Office LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you like a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a professional to double-check your appraisal for accuracy? An appraiser from My Appraisal Office LLC can go out and check the subject and comparables in a field review. Or, if you're in a hurry, we can provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can, using online data sources as well as our own files.

We can also provide you with a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have had in the past. While usually requested by banks, you may want to make use of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
