At Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC, we understand the unique needs of a homeowner seeking appraisal services. The appraisal process and reporting formats are relatively routine to our business clients like lenders, attorneys, and CPAs.

For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your home because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. 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 how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value estimation than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable money saver for homeowners is getting 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 is down 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. At Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC, we're seasoned in helping clients just like you get rid of unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in an area that's declining or is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby. This only means you are probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. 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. A professional appraisal from Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC is your chief weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your property is near a declining area, your lender just may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be inconvenient from a cash flow standpoint, and bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

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