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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. 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 valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It's something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value report than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable money saver for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. At Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC, we're veterans in helping homeowners just like you abolish unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a region that is going down or is not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. This means you're going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC is your number one weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your house is near a declining area, your lender just may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also annoying from a cash flow standpoint. An appraisal from Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.
