It's very hard to be objective about your house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at a la mode testing name will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It's something tangible to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, and not just how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value report than yours.

Challenge Tax Assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a region that is declining or is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby. This means you are going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better. Getting an appraisal from a la mode testing name is your #1 weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

PMI Removal Appraisals

A popular way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At a la mode testing name, we're seasoned in helping homeowners just like you dismiss unnecessary PMI insurance.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender just may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. a la mode testing name can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.

Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you wish a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you need a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for verity? We can go out and check the subject and comps in question in a field review. Or, if you're in a hurry, 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 a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have in your possession. Although most appraisal reviews are requested by lenders, homeowners that have reason to believe a prior appraisal wasn't above board are wise to invest in a second opinion.
