For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Anderson Appraisal, LLC 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 property will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, and not just you saying how much your home is worth. Interested buyers know 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 cancel PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're seasoned in helping consumers just like you delete unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

Lets say you live in a region that is declining -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This only means you are paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Anderson Appraisal, LLC is your perfect weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender just might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be troublesome from a cash flow angle, but it can be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Anderson Appraisal, LLC can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Have you just been given a copy of your appraisal and you'd like to have an expert double-check it for accuracy or do you desire a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comps. If you need it immediately, we'll provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

Need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? We can help with that too. While typically requested by banks, you may wish to take advantage of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
