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

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Aaliyah Appraisals 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 important negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, and not just how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value judgement than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable money saver for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're experts in helping clients just like you delete unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house not appreciating as much as other houses nearby. That means you are most likely paying more taxes than you should. The earlier 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. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Aaliyah Appraisals is your strongest weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is near a declining area. Not only can this be difficult from a cash flow point of view, but it can be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. A professional appraisal from Aaliyah Appraisals can help you reinstate your HELOC.
