Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Premier Appraisal of SoCal will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract interested buyers. It's something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, not just how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a preferred way to cut expenses for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're seasoned in helping people just like you do away with unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a region that is going down. That only means you're most likely paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. An appraisal report from Premier Appraisal of SoCal is your #1 weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is close to a declining area. This can this be troublesome from a cash flow angle, and damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An expert appraisal from Premier Appraisal of SoCal can help you reinstate your HELOC.
