For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Accurate Value Real Estate Appraisals 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 selling price so your property will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. It's something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house'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 an experienced appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a popular way to save money 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 the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. Accurate Value Real Estate Appraisals is experienced in helping people just like you remove unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge Oakland county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a local area that's declining or not appreciating as much as other properties close to yours. That only means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. Getting an appraisal from Accurate Value Real Estate Appraisals is your perfect weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your home is in or near a declining area, your lender may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be troublesome from a cash flow angle, but it can be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An efficient appraisal from Accurate Value Real Estate Appraisals can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Would you like a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you need a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for efficiency? In a field review we will go out and check the subject and comparables in question. Or, if you're in a hurry, 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 you with a a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have had done before. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may wish to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
