Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your house because of your 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 house will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, not just how much your house is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. At A & B Tax Service, we're experienced in helping consumers just like you delete unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge Racine county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your home is not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. That only means you are most likely paying more taxes than you should. The sooner 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. An appraisal from A & B Tax Service is your number one weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in a declining area. Not only can this be disadvantageous from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An expert appraisal from A & B Tax Service can help you reinstate your HELOC.
