For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own 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 selling price so your house will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It gives you something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, not just you saying how much your home is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. We're veterans in helping homeowners just like you dismiss undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge New Castle county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house is not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. That only means you are paying more taxes than you should. The faster you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. A professional appraisal from Amerappraise, LLC is your perfect weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your house is near a declining area, your lender might just make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also inconvenient from a cash flow point of view. Amerappraise, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.
