Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Appraise Colorado Inc are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, and not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a fashionable way to cut costs for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're veterans in helping clients just like you remove unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging Arapahoe county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in an area that's declining or is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby. This means you're probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The quicker 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 an expert appraisal from Appraise Colorado Inc is your perfect weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might just make the decision 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 difficult from a cash flow point of view, but it can be damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Appraise Colorado Inc can provide you with a professional appraisal to help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.

We Also Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Have you just been handed a copy of your appraisal and you would like to have an expert double-check it for verity or do you want a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from Appraise Colorado Inc can go out and check the subject and comparables in question in a field review. If you're in a rush, we'll 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? Appraise Colorado Inc can help with that too. While usually requested by banks, you may want to utilize this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
