For Homeowners

    ~ Homeowner Appraisal Services

    Homeowners need appraisals or appraisal reviews for a variety of reasons, including a mortgage  
    refinance, home equity loans, Pre-listing services, and PMI removal. When you order an appraisal
    or review from us, you can rest assured that you will get the best in professional service, courtesy,
    and quality.

    ~ Refinance / Home Equity

    Be sure that you request us if your lender asks you for YOUR choice of appraisal firms. More
    than likely we are already on their "approved list", and if not we will quickly provide your lender
    with the necessary documentation to become approved.

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

    It's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to 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 home will attract
    buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a
    potential buyer. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third
    party's opinion of your home's value, and not just you saying how much your home is worth.
    Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far
    more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value opinion than yours.

    ~ PMI Removal Appraisals

    A popular money saver for homeowners in the last few years is to get 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 amount is down below 80% of the
    value of your home, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from
    your loan, which will make your monthly payments lower. We are experienced in helping folks
    just like you rid themselves of unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

    ~ Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

    Have you just received a copy of your appraisal and you would like to have a professional
    "double-check" it for accuracy or do you need a second opinion without the expense and delay of
    waiting for a whole new appraisal?

    Appraisal Field Reviews: Well check your appraisal for accuracy and provide exterior "field
    inspections" of the subject and comparable properties for maximum appraisal certainty at
    minimum cost. Perfect for any situation demanding a second opinion on value.

    Appraisal Desk Reviews: In a hurry and just want to "double-check" the facts? Well use our
    extensive private multiple listings system research capabilities and office files to deliver reviews
    with the highest degree of precision in the industry, also at minimum cost to you.
