For Sale by Owner/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 Marketwise Appraisal, LLC are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract buyers. It gives you 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 house is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Challenge Tax Assessment

If you live in an area that is declining or not appreciating as much as other houses close by, your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This only means you're going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. An appraisal report from Marketwise Appraisal, LLC is your #1 weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Appraisals to remove PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a fashionable way to cut expenses for homeowners. 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. Marketwise Appraisal, LLC is seasoned in helping people just like you remove unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Recently got a freeze to your HELOC?

Your lender might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow point of view. Marketwise Appraisal, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need a seasoned professional to double-check your appraisal for accuracy, or do you need a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? We can go out and check the subject and comparables in a field review. If you're in a rush, we'll 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 had in the past. Even though most appraisal reviews are commissioned by lenders for quality control, homeowners that have reason to believe a prior appraisal wasn't above board are prudent to invest in a second opinion.
