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

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Accuracy Matters Appraisals will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract buyers. It's something tangible to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's price -- not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value judgement than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A popular way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. We are qualified in helping clients just like you rid themselves of unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Lets say you live in an area that is declining -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That only means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of things like this, the better. Getting an appraisal from Accuracy Matters Appraisals is your chief weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be disadvantageous from a cash flow viewpoint, and harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Accuracy Matters Appraisals can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with a professional appraisal.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Do you need a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for preciseness, or do you want a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? We can go out and check the subject and comparables in question in a field review. If you need it in a rush, we'll provide 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. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may wish to take advantage of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
