Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, and not just how much your house is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan 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, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're qualified in helping people just like you delete unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

Lets say your home is not appreciating as much as other properties nearby -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This only means you're probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from Appraisal Express HI, LLC is your strongest weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender just may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be difficult from a cash flow angle, but it can be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Appraisal Express HI, LLC can provide you with efficient appraisal that will help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need an expert to double-check your appraisal for precision, or do you desire a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from Appraisal Express HI, LLC can go out and check the subject and comps in question in a field review. Or, if you need it ASAP, we can provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have had done before. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may wish to utilize this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
