For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract buyers. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price -- not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value report than yours.

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 less than 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. We are qualified in helping homeowners just like you delete unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge Racine county's assessment of your property

If you live in an area that is going down or not appreciating as much as other houses close by, your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That only means you're paying more taxes than you should. The faster you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from A & B Tax Service is your chief weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your property is close to a declining area, your lender just might 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 angle, and harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. A & B Tax Service can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.

We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Have you just gotten a copy of your appraisal and you'd prefer to have a professional double-check it for preciseness or do you want a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from A & B Tax Service can go out and check the subject and comps in a field review. Or, if you're in a rush, we can 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 you with that. While usually requested by banks, you may need to exploit this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
