For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) / 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 Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just how much your home is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

An attractive way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. We are experts in helping people just like you dismiss undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge Duval county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a local area that is declining or is not appreciating as much as other houses close to yours. This means you are paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group is your #1 weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

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