For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) /
Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Tri County Appraisal LLC is objective. You won't be told "just what you want to hear", we'll tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price for your property that will attract interested buyers. It gives you something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value opinion than yours.
PMI Removal Appraisals
A preferred way to save money 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 canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Tri County Appraisal LLC, we're experienced in helping clients just like you abolish unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenging Ottawa County's assessment of your property
Lets say you live in an area that's going down -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That means you are paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. Getting an appraisal from Tri County Appraisal LLC is your perfect weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?
Your lender just may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is close to a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Tri County Appraisal LLC can help reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.
