For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your house 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. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers. It's something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property'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 qualified appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

An attractive way to cut costs for homeowners is getting 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 below 80% of the value of your home, 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 qualified in helping folks just like you dismiss undesirable PMI insurance.

HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender just may choose 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. This can be be detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also annoying from a cash flow viewpoint. Priority Appraisals can help you reinstate your HELOC.
