At A & B Tax Service, we understand the particular needs of a consumer after appraisal services. Our typical business clients are used to the appraisal process and the usual reporting formats. As our client, we will give you extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to understand what we do and how we report our conclusions.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at A & B Tax Service will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract 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 the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property'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 an expert appraiser's value opinion than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a fashionable money saver for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. At A & B Tax Service, we're experienced in helping customers just like you dismiss unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

If you live in an area that is going down or is not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours, your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of things like this, the better. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from A & B Tax Service is your chief weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is close to a declining area. This can this be annoying from a cash flow point of view, and detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An efficient appraisal from A & B Tax Service can help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need an expert to double-check your appraisal for verity, or do you need a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal?
