At Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc ., we understand the unique needs of a homeowner looking for appraisal services.

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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc ., will be objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract buyers. It's something concrete to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just you saying how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive money saver for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down 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. We are veterans in helping folks just like you delete unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a local area that is going down or is not appreciating as much as other houses close to yours. That only means you're paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of things like this, the better. Getting an appraisal report from Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc . is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in a declining area. This can this be troublesome from a cash flow standpoint, and bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc . can provide you with a professional appraisal to help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.

We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Have you just been handed a copy of your appraisal and you would prefer to have an expert double-check it for efficiency or do you need a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc . offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comps in question. If you're in a rush, we'll provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc . can help you with that. While usually requested by banks, you may want to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
