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

It's very hard to be objective about your home because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Pretiger Appraisal Company are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, and not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a fashionable way to cut costs for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. Pretiger Appraisal Company is experienced in helping customers just like you dismiss unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if your house not appreciating as much as other houses close to yours. 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 sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better. Getting an expert appraisal from Pretiger Appraisal Company is your #1 weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your property is close to a declining area, your lender may just 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 disadvantageous from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Pretiger Appraisal Company can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.
