For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Central Arizona Appraisers 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 selling price so your house will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price -- not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value opinion than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a fashionable way to cut expenses for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your home, 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. At Central Arizona Appraisers, we're seasoned in helping clients just like you rid themselves of unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This means you're probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. 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 Central Arizona Appraisers is your perfect weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is close to a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be inconvenient from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Central Arizona Appraisers can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.
