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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Sands Appraisal Service, Inc. 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 interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It's something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. At Sands Appraisal Service, Inc., we're experts in helping customers just like you rid themselves of unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge Morris county's assessment of your property

If you live in an area that is going down or not appreciating as much as other homes nearby, your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This means you're most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. An appraisal report from Sands Appraisal Service, Inc. is your perfect weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

If your house is in or near a declining area, your lender might 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 inconvenient from a cash flow angle, but it can be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Sands Appraisal Service, Inc. can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.
