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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about 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 very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract many interested buyers. It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, and not just how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

A preferred way to cut expenses for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan is less than 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. At Realty Valuators, Inc, we're seasoned in helping clients just like you dismiss unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge Hillsborough county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a local area that's declining or not appreciating as much as other properties close by. That means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. The earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An expert appraisal from Realty Valuators, Inc is your #1 weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender may just decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow angle, and harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Realty Valuators, Inc can provide you with a professional appraisal to help you reinstate your HELOC.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Do you need a professional to double-check your appraisal for preciseness, or do you desire a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from Realty Valuators, Inc can go out and check the subject and comps in a field review. If you need it ASAP, we'll provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have had in the past. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may want to exploit this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
