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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about 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 property will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It gives you something tangible 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 home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value opinion than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

A preferred money saver for homeowners is getting the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". 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 removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are veterans in helping customers just like you remove unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a region that is going down. That only means you are probably paying more taxes than you should. The faster you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. Getting a professional appraisal from Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your house is near a declining area, your lender just might 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 destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also unsuitable from a cash flow point of view. Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Would you like a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you need a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for precision? Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comps in question. Or, if you need it immediately, we can provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have had done before. While typically requested by banks, you may need to use this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
