Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because you probably have an emotional attachment to 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 very valuable negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract buyers. It's something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, and not just how much your home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

A preferred way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are experienced in helping people just like you do away with unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge Racine county's assessment of your property

Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That means you're going to pay 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. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from A & B Tax Service is your chief weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in or near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be difficult from a cash flow angle, and destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. A & B Tax Service can provide you with efficient appraisal to help you reinstate your HELOC.
