We at Amerappraise, LLC understand the unique needs of a homeowner looking for appraisal services. Our customary business clients understand the appraisal process and the customary "products" we deliver to them. As our non-traditionalclient, we will give you extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to more fully understand what we do and how we document our conclusions.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Amerappraise, LLC 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 an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract many interested buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value -- not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred way to save money for homeowners is to get the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. 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 eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Amerappraise, LLC, we're experts in helping customers just like you delete unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge 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 houses close to yours. This means you're paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The faster you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An expert appraisal from Amerappraise, LLC is your #1 weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

If your property is in or near a declining area, your lender may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - 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. Amerappraise, LLC can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.

Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need an expert to double-check your appraisal for precision, or do you want a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? We can go out and check the subject and comparables in a field review. Or, if you need it in a rush, we can provide 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 a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have had done before. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may want to take advantage of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
