For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is a crucial 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 many interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's price -- not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

A preferred money saver for homeowners is getting 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 house. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. We're experienced in helping consumers just like you get rid of unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

If you live in a region that is going down or is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby, your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That only means you are most likely paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better. Getting an appraisal from KEY INSIGHT is your chief weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

If your property 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. This can this be inopportune from a cash flow standpoint, and unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. KEY INSIGHT can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.

Do you need a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for verity, or do you need a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal?
