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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Premier Appraisal of SoCal, will be objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It's something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value assessment than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

An attractive money saver 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". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. Premier Appraisal of SoCal is experts in helping folks just like you abolish unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

Lets say you live in a local area that is declining -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This only means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Premier Appraisal of SoCal is your number one weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in a declining area. Not only can this be annoying from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Premier Appraisal of SoCal can help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Have you just been handed a copy of your appraisal and you'd wish to have a seasoned appraiser double-check it for accuracy or do you need a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we will go out and check the subject and comparables in question. If you're in a rush, 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? We can help with that too. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may wish to exercise this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
