For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your home because of your 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. A professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract buyers. It's something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is an attractive money saver for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At A & B Tax Service, we're veterans in helping people just like you do away with unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

Lets say you live in a region that is going down -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This means you are probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. An appraisal report from A & B Tax Service is your perfect weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

If your house is near a declining area, your lender just may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also inopportune from a cash flow viewpoint. A & B Tax Service can help you reinstate your HELOC.
