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

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group 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 selling price so your property will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. The appraisal is something concrete to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a preferred money saver for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group is experts in helping people just like you abolish unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge Duval county's assessment of your property

Lets say you live in a region that's declining -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This 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 earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. An appraisal from Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group is your perfect weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your property is close to a declining area, your lender just may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also inopportune from a cash flow viewpoint. An efficient appraisal from Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group can help you reinstate your HELOC.
