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

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at A & B Tax Service, are objective. We'll tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value estimation than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're veterans in helping consumers just like you dismiss unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

If you live in an area that is going down or is not appreciating as much as other properties close by, your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This means you're probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The faster you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. A professional appraisal from A & B Tax Service is your perfect weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your house is close to a declining area, your lender just may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow point of view, and bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. A & B Tax Service can provide you with an expert appraisal that will help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.

We Also Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you wish a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for verity? In a field review we will go out and check the subject and comps. If you need it ASAP, 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.

Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? A & B Tax Service can help with that too. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may need to make use of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
