Pre-listing Services/For Sale by Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your home because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Premiere Appraisals, LLC 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 selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, not just you saying how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Challenge property tax assessments

If you live in an area that is declining or is not appreciating as much as other houses close to yours, your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This only means you're most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. 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. Getting an appraisal from Premiere Appraisals, LLC is your best weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Need to cancel PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a popular way to cut expenses for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. Premiere Appraisals, LLC is experienced in helping folks just like you delete unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Recently got a freeze to your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is near a declining area. This can be destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also inconvenient from a cash flow viewpoint. Premiere Appraisals, LLC can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with a professional appraisal.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Do you need a seasoned professional to double-check your appraisal for verity, or do you desire a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comparables. Or, if you need it in a rush, we can 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 done before. While usually requested by banks, you may want to make use of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
