The top 7 reasons Ohio homeowners call on Real Estate Appraisal Group, LLC:
At Real Estate Appraisal Group, LLC, we understand the unique needs of a consumer looking for appraisal services. While our usual clients understand the appraisal process and standard reporting formats, you as a consumer will get extra customer service in the form of an explanation of the process and even special consumer-friendly reporting forms if the assignment allows for them.
For-Sale-by-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing ServicesSince you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Real Estate Appraisal Group, LLC 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 very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract interested buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's market value, not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value conclusion than yours.
Challenging a property tax assessmentLet's say you live in a region that's declining -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This means you are going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. The quicker you take care of things like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. Getting an expert appraisal from Real Estate Appraisal Group, LLC is your best weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.
Need to remove PMI?An attractive way to cut expenses 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". 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. Real Estate Appraisal Group, LLC is qualified in helping customers just like you do away with undesirable PMI insurance.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?Your lender might just decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is close to a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be inconvenient from a cash flow angle, and unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Real Estate Appraisal Group, LLC can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.
Field and Desktop Appraisal Review ServicesHave you just accepted a copy of your appraisal and you'd wish to have a seasoned appraiser double-check it for preciseness or do you desire a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Real Estate Appraisal Group, LLC offers field reviews where we go out and check the subject and comps. Or, if you need it immediately, we can provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can, using online data sources as well as our own files.
We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have in your possession. Even though most appraisal reviews are requested by lenders, homeowners suspecting a prior appraisal wasn't above board are wise to invest in a second opinion.
