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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Kurb Service Appraisals, will be objective. We'll tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It's something concrete to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, not just you saying how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred money saver for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. Kurb Service Appraisals is seasoned in helping homeowners just like you remove unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Lets say you live in a local area that's declining -- your local tax assessor may have your house 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 faster you take care of things like this, the better. Getting a professional appraisal from Kurb Service Appraisals is your perfect weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender just may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is close to a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be troublesome from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Kurb Service Appraisals can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.
