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

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at KEY INSIGHT, are objective. We 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 a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract interested buyers. It gives you something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, not just how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A popular way to cut expenses for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. KEY INSIGHT is veterans in helping customers just like you remove unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if your home not appreciating as much as other houses nearby. That means you're paying more taxes than you should. The faster you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An appraisal from KEY INSIGHT is your number one weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender just may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be troublesome from a cash flow viewpoint, and bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. KEY INSIGHT can provide you with an expert appraisal that will help you reinstate your HELOC.
