Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Reliable Appraisals Inc. are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract many interested buyers. It's something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, and not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value report than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

A popular way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get the PMI canceled 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 house, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're seasoned in helping customers just like you get rid of unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a local area that is declining. This means you're most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The faster you take care of things 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 Reliable Appraisals Inc. is your chief weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender might choose 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 unsuitable from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An efficient appraisal from Reliable Appraisals Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.
