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. The professional appraisers at Metro Appraisals will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an interested 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 your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, not just you saying how much your home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value report than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a preferred money saver for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. Metro Appraisals is qualified in helping people just like you remove unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge Ada county's assessment of your property

Lets say you live in a region that's going down -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That only means you're going to pay more taxes than you should. The faster 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 contesting your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Metro Appraisals is your best weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your home is close to a declining area, your lender may just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also unsuitable from a cash flow point of view. A professional appraisal from Metro Appraisals can help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need a seasoned professional to double-check your appraisal for verity, or do you desire a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal?

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.
