For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value -- not just how much your home is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable way to save money for homeowners is to get the PMI canceled 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 property, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC is qualified in helping folks just like you remove unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Lets say you live in a local area that's declining -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This only means you are 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 a matter like this, the better. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC is your strongest weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be inopportune from a cash flow angle, but it can be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Have you just received a copy of your appraisal and you'd prefer to have an expert double-check it for accuracy or do you need a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comparables in question. Or, if you need it ASAP, we can provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

Need a retrospective review of an appraisal? We can help you with that Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may wish to utilize this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
