Pre-listing Services/For Sale by Owner (FSBO)

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Trust Real Estate Appraisal Services PLC 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 a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract many interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value -- not just how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Challenging property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house is not appreciating as much as other properties close to yours. This means you're most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Trust Real Estate Appraisal Services PLC is your perfect weapon.

Need to remove PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is an attractive money saver for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. We're veterans in helping consumers just like you remove unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Recently got a freeze to your HELOC?

Your lender might just 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. Not only can this be troublesome from a cash flow angle, but it can be detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Trust Real Estate Appraisal Services PLC can provide you with an expert appraisal to help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.

We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you prefer a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you need a professional to double-check your appraisal for preciseness? We can go out and check the subject and comparables in question in a field review. 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.

Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal? We can help with that too. Even though most review work is requested by lenders, homeowners suspecting a prior appraisal wasn't above board are wise to invest in a second opinion.
