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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at A & B Tax Service are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract many interested buyers. It's something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price -- not just how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a preferred way to cut costs for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount 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. A & B Tax Service is qualified in helping consumers just like you abolish unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

Lets say your home is not appreciating as much as other properties close by -- your local tax assessor may have your home 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 earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from A & B Tax Service is your best weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in a declining area. This can this be disadvantageous from a cash flow point of view, and destructive 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 efficient appraisal.
