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. The professional appraisers at Premier Appraisal of SoCal will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. At Premier Appraisal of SoCal, we're qualified in helping people just like you remove undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge Orange county's assessment of your property

Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other properties nearby -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This only means you're paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. Getting an appraisal from Premier Appraisal of SoCal is your #1 weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

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