For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to 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 attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract buyers. It gives you something tangible to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price -- not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to save money for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your home, 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 are experts in helping homeowners just like you do away with unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Lets say you live in an area that's declining -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This means you're probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. An appraisal from Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate Services is your best weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is close to a declining area. This can this be difficult from a cash flow point of view, and bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate Services can provide you with an expert appraisal that will help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.

We Also Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you wish a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you need a professional to double-check your appraisal for efficiency? Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate Services offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comps in question. If you're in a hurry, we'll provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have had done before. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may wish to make use of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
