Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, 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. A professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract interested buyers. It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, not just you saying how much your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a fashionable way to save money for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. We are experienced in helping folks just like you remove unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

Lets say you live in a local area that is declining -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This only means you are paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The earlier you take care of things 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 from Appraisal Express HI, LLC is your best weapon.
