Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because of your emotional attachment to 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 home will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value estimation 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". Once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're qualified in helping folks just like you remove unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house is not appreciating as much as other houses nearby. That means you're most likely paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of things like this, the better. An appraisal from Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC is your number one weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender just might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in or near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be annoying from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be destructive to 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.

Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you wish a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you want a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for verity? Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC offers field reviews where we go out and check the subject and comps. 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.

Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal? Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC can help with that too. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may desire to take advantage of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
