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. 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 interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's price -- not just you saying how much your home is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to cut costs for homeowners. 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. We're experienced in helping customers just like you get rid of unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other properties close by -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This only means you are paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of things like this, the better. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Appraise Colorado Inc is your number one weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender might just decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in or near a declining area -- 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 disadvantageous from a cash flow viewpoint. Appraise Colorado Inc can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.
