Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because you most likely have an 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. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, not just how much your home is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a preferred money saver for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan 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. At Accuracy Matters Appraisals, we're seasoned in helping people just like you rid yourselves of unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenging Rio Grande county's assessment of your property

Lets say your home is not appreciating as much as other properties close to yours -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only means you are most likely paying more taxes than you should. The sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. Getting an expert appraisal from Accuracy Matters Appraisals is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is near a declining area. This can be be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also inconvenient from a cash flow angle. An appraisal from Accuracy Matters Appraisals can help you reinstate your HELOC.
