Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Property Valuation Group will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract interested buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, and not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value estimation than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

A popular way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI canceled 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 is down below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. At Property Valuation Group, we're qualified in helping clients just like you delete unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging Oakland county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in an area that's declining. This means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The quicker 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 Property Valuation Group is your best weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might just make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in or near a declining area. This can this be troublesome from a cash flow standpoint, and harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Property Valuation Group can provide you with a professional appraisal to help you reinstate your HELOC.
