For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services
Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Alpine 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 an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract many interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value -- not just how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value estimation than yours.
Need to remove PMI?
PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. 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. Once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're seasoned in helping homeowners just like you get rid of undesirable PMI insurance.
Challenge Tax Assessment
Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a region that is going down. This means you're probably 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 things like this, the better off you'll be. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from Alpine Appraisals is your best weapon.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?
If your home is near a declining area, your lender just might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be annoying from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Alpine Appraisals can provide you with an expert appraisal to help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.
We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services
Would you prefer a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you want an expert to double-check your appraisal for precision? Alpine Appraisals offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comps. 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.
Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal? Alpine Appraisals can help you with that. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may need to exercise this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
