For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services
It's very hard to be objective about your own home because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at DFW Quality Appraisal 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 price to sell at so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, and not just how much your home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value judgement than yours.
Need to cancel PMI?
A preferred money saver for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're experienced in helping consumers just like you delete unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenging Dallas county's assessment of your property
Lets say you live in a region that's going down -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This means you are probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of things like this, the better. Getting a professional appraisal from DFW Quality Appraisal 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 may just make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is close to a declining area. This can be be destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also disadvantageous from a cash flow standpoint. DFW Quality Appraisal can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.
