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

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Appraisal Express HI, LLC are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. It's something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price -- not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

A preferred way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. We're qualified in helping clients just like you abolish unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Lets say you live in a region that is declining -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. Getting an appraisal from Appraisal Express HI, LLC is your best weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

If your property is near a declining area, your lender may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be troublesome from a cash flow point of view, but it can be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Appraisal Express HI, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.
